5 reasons why fruit flies rock or why i love the black bellied dew lover

  1. too small to be hit with a flyswatter.
  2. official name: drosophila melanogaster which is greek for black bellied dew lover
  3. fully grown in a week
  4. "females become receptive to courting males at about 8-12 hours after emergence" - omg - and that's without alcohol!
  5. their wings beat 220 times - per second.

it's true. wikipedia told me so.

bob on!
