"Mosquitoes have teeth."

Well, given that mosquitoes definately like me I shall avoid bananas in the summer months. As for teeth: I have felt the full wrath of their bite! But I didn't realise they had teeth! :eek:

Hi all. C.ockroaches can live for several weeks because their brain (?) is in their abdomen. I think. Maybe its their mouth. Oh no wait because you can live without a mouth.
:rolleyes:

Oh I dont know, an important bodily function that is not usually in the abdomen of most animals is in the abdomen of a ****roach hence their ability to survive after they are decapitated.

btw, thanks Chocco, very intresting. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
