Exciting Animal Tails

So there is this moth recently found in Madagascar, that feeds on the tears of birds. It has a long, harpoon like proboscis, which it inserts under the eyelids of sleeping birds, in order to drink from their tears. This latest find joins other moth species who drink the tears of elephants.

The good news in all this that even at my most bouncy and boundaryless, I have yet to decend to this level of creepiness. In other animal news, the Box Jellyfish has 64 anus's. No, I have absolutely no idea why.
