I love finding weird and wonderful things in nature that will excite/inspire/revolt and generally interest my kids. I watched David Attenborough's new series "Life" showing in the UK at the moment and the first episode had this little guy in it.

When he came out of his cocoon his eyes were on either side of his head, where there should be..... or so I thought. He proceeded to gulp air into his head and blow his eyes out on long stalks to where you see them now. The longer his stalks were the better chance he had of being the boss man and all the females in the area were his for the taking.......

Although parts of the program were a little adult for my kids, I let them see this guy....... they loved it.
