God Is Trolling The Evolutionists Again

Oh, holy fuck.

Y'all ain't gonna believe this shit.

A fruit fly has evolved with the image of an ant on each wing.

Fruit Fly 1

This creature, the G tridens, was discovered in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.  Those are not actual ants in the wings, it's a pattern that develops naturally, discovered by Dr. Brigitte Howarth, the fly specialist at Zayed University, on a conservation there.  Others have simple designs, but this one?  It is a precisely detailed image on an ant.  Six legs, two antennae, a head, a thorax, and an abdomen. "The image on the wing is absolutely perfect," says Dr Howarth, although I would describe it as "freaky as shit."

What's the purpose?  The best guess is the fruit fly waves its wings and the images create the illusion of a bigger insect.

Whatever.

And now, your daily dose of nightmare fuel.

I'm not a fan of creepy crawlies. So I'd be impressed if I wasn't busy shitting myself. ;)
