I just worked out where the chaps who made the Predator series of films got their inspiration from 🙂

These little guys, well our ones are certainly not little anymore they are getting quite large, look absolutely freakish when you get up close and have a proper look 🙂 The other really neat thing about them is that whilst they have a standard insect compound eye, they have what looks like a eye ball on it.. and it moves, follows you around 🙂

Imagine being the size of a ant and coming across one of these in the bushes !

  1. This makes me very glad that I am all of 1.6 metres tall so that I don't ever have to look at one of these face to face again outside of your brilliant portrait. This is seriously frightening, or would be if were 1.6 mm instead!
