Moths Drink Sleeping Bird Tears!?

New Scientist: "A species of moth drinks tears from the eyes of sleeping birds using a fearsome proboscis shaped like a harpoon, scientists have revealed. The new discovery – spied in Madagascar – is the first time moths have been seen feeding on the tears of birds."

Very creepy. Strangely, it reminds me of the SEO industry.

Hope you and Livy are enjoying the end-of-year hijinx.
