Combative bugs

The second season of Monster Bug Wars premieres on the Science Channel Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 10 p.m. EST. The seven shows feature the behavior of predatory arthropods (spiders, insects, centipedes, scorpions, amblypygids, crabs) that come into conflict with one another.

The show’s human stars, Linda Rayor, Department of Entomology senior research associate and senior lecturer, and Bryan Grieg Fry of the University of Queensland, discuss the biology and behavioral strategies of the combatants.

According to Rayor, “The show is fun, the science is accurate, and the macrovideography is spectacular.”

Episodes are available on YouTube.
