Goth moths slurp birds’ tears after piercing victims’ eyelids

from Boing Boing

Xeni Jardin: To paraphrase a quote immortalized by Mark‘s 7-year-old daughter: nature is creepy, interesting, and real. This New Scientist article reveals that not only do some moth species drink the tears of sleeping birds, but the flying insects have evolved barbed tongues with which to pierce the birdies’ beverage-filled eyelids. Utterly grody.
