Super bug! World’s strongest insect revealed

After months of grueling tests, a species of horned dung beetle takes the title for world’s strongest insect.

The beetle, called Onthophagus taurus, was found to be able to pull a whopping 1,141 times its own body weight, which is the equivalent of a 150-pound (70-kilogram) person lifting six full double-decker buses. While the study researcher knows of a mite that can take on a hair more, that organism is an arachnid, not an insect.

Isn’t this the sh#t eating bug? Does that mean if we eat sh#t we will be stronger?

Works for rabbits … those little buggers eat their own droppings, and repeat until it’s too hard to chew …

Gives them so much energy that they breed like … well … rabbits :stuck_out_tongue:

Now your telling me that is I sh#t I will have as much sex as rabbits.

I always thought ticks were quite strong since they can be in hibernation for over 25 years.
