Bizarre Behaviour: Fighting Fruit Flies

It has been a while since I last posted something on this blog. But no worries, here’s another post! This time it is about an article and video I came across a year or so ago (it’s older, but sometimes I discover things much later…)

As the title of this post suggest it is about fighting fruit flies! Yes, even these little creatures get into a fight now and then. Moreover, scientists have even used them for research on agressive behaviour. I will keep this short, so you can start watching the videos below. It’s hilarious and informative, I promise!

Come to think of it, I do slightly wonder about the ethical implications of this kind of research…

If you want to read more on research such as this, you could check out this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/10/science/10flies.html?_r=0
