What’s the Backstory?

Not long ago there was a story about a lady finding a spider in a blueberry. I had a hard time imagining a bug tunneling into a fruit that small until this week when we bought the largest blueberries I’ve ever seen. I could easily imagine an insect getting comfortable inside our gigantic berries, and of course, I had to check them carefully to avoid any surprises. Since we’re mentioning massive fruit, let’s check out the massive creatures who might enjoy it. Watch this:


 That’s the stuff of nightmares. Dig into nature, and you never know what unusual creatures you’ll find. The natural world is bursting with variety and so much to explore. A quick internet search identified a handful of different kinds of commonly grown blueberries and over twelve hundred bat species. In the comments section, talk about why you think there are so many types of plants and mammals living side by side.
