This Insect Jumps Like Nothing Else on Earth!

We found some beetle larvae under the bark of a dead tree that perform very unusual spring-loaded jumps! It was so weird that we ended up doing a whole study on them and just submitted it for publication as a peer-reviewed science journal article. You can check out the pre-print (the version that is currently under review) of that research study here: Update Jan 19, 2022: this research is now out in a peer-reviewed journal article!: https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0256509 https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.08.17.456653v1 This wasn't work just done by me! It is a collaborative study done with several scientists, who you can find and follow on twitter and elsewhere: Matt Bertone: https://twitter.com/Bertonemyia Josh Gibson: https://twitter.com/DrStrangeAnt Ainsley Seago: https://twitter.com/americanbeetles Takahiro Yoshida: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Takahiro-Yoshida-6 Still images in this video by Matt Bertone & music licensed from soundofpicture.com
