Rather than avoiding its predators, the larva lures them closer and then attacks, latching on tight with its hooked jaws and feeding parasitically. The latest Bio Bulletin from the Museum's Science Bulletins program highlights this unprecedented role reversal in the animal kingdom.

Description of Video The cross is the most widely recognised Christian symbol. But it takes many forms and, in each of them, is embedded a different way of looking at the death of Jesus and what his death means for particular groups of Christians.
