They'll be scared of any other living creature than their mother, including their father. Why does that happen? It's not so apparent for human babies, i guess Their dads may be important for their survival too, so why do they seem to "love" their moms more?

    Twice now, I have found a strange bug that looks sorta like a millipede in my room. It moves sort of like a inchworm. And it has a really big flat head. The whole bug itself is only 1 cm long, so I couldn t get a good picture of it. I ve looked online for over an hour and I can t find anything that resembles this bug. Just think about a millipede with a large flat head, no antennas, and it moves like an inchworm. It s the weirdest thing. And when I grab it by its butt, it quickly whips its head around. It s very fast. I don t think it s any kind of caterpillar, even though it moves like one. I think it is some kind of millipede. Does anything come to mind? I live in North America. Millipedes aren t too common where I live. it is also very hot and dry outside.

    Best answer: You have to understand the hydrology of Florida first. The Kissimmee River that drains the main watershed of north-central Florida flows into Lake Okeechobee. The Kissimmee watershed is a major agricultural area, producing much of this country's produce and citrus crop. Because of the heavy rains the fertilizer run-off from the farms along the Kissimmee causes algae blooms in the Lake Okeechobee, which then flow through the Caloosahatchee River into the Gulf of Mexico. The algae can be toxic, and as the marine life consumes the algae, the toxin enters the food chain: as the fish eat the organisms that eat the algae, the toxins accumulate in their bodies, then the predators who eat the fish also get a dose of toxins. Furthermore, as the marine life dies from the toxins, the decay of their bodies causes low dissolved oxygen levels in the water, leading a chain reaction of more marine life die off.

    For some time a high pressure system over the Bahamas dominated the weather over Florida, The clockwise air circulation around that high pressure system caused the winds over Florida west coast to blow from the west and southwest, pinning the oxygen-poor water against the shore and washing dead fish on the beaches of Sarasota County. The high pressure system is now shifting to the north and the winds are shifting to the southeast pushing the red tide out to sea.

    While the red tide can occur naturally, there is no doubt that over-fertilizing of the fields, combined with the destruction of the wetlands that can absorb the excess fertilizer run-off is a major contributor to the frequency and severity of red and blue tides.

    I've never seen anything like this before and it scared the hell out of me. I almost touched it not paying attention. From watching animal planet and discovery I surmise it is poisonous. Usually brightly colored things in the animal and insect kingdom are dangerous. It was pretty big too. Don't know if you can tell by the photo but it is a little bigger than a quarter and fat.
