Weird Insect Eggs Don’t Need No Special Effects

They say that truth is stranger than fiction. I say that when it comes to eggs, fictional eggs are overall much much freakier.  I mean, are there any real eggs that spawn facehuggers? But as these pictures will show you, real eggs can be really weird too. Insects reprazent!

Let’s start off with something spooky. Those are some spooky eggs, from the Spooky Insect. Okay I don’t know what insect comes out of those eggs. Which adds to the mystery, don’t you think?

insect-eggs-2

It’s easy to see how mystery eggs number 2 may freak the hell out of other insects and animals. They look like tiny webcams.

That’s a Papaya fruit fly, depositing its “milky, white eggs” into a fruit. Good thing I don’t eat papayas.

insect-eggs-5

These Spined Soldier Bug eggs look like something out of a Contra or Metroid game. As you may have guessed, their shiny, spiny shells deter would-be predators from munching on them. The shells stiffen as time goes by, further protecting the critters inside.

Check out the original article at Webphemera for more strange, and sometimes disgusting insect eggs. Don’t forget to check your fruits for eggs.
