And there were Shepards out in the fields watching their flocks and an angle of the lord came to them and they were so afraid.
  But the angle said, "Fear not for behold, I bring good tiding of great joy. For unto you this day in the city of David a savoy has been born and he is Christ the Lord."

Merry Christmas!

All bugs have to molt so that they can grow.
A insect has a outer shell that is called an exoskeleton. This shell protects the insect from smashing if it falls, and other dangers.
But because the Exoskeleton is so hard the insect has to shed it before growing.
(You will most often see a cicada exoskeleton.)

File:Cicada molting animated-2.gif

When the insects exoskeleton gets too small the insect begins to grow a new one under the old shell.
This new exoskeleton produces a chemical that loosens the old shell.
Then the insect begins to take in huge breaths and stretches it's self. This loosens the old shell and then is breaks open and the insect can come out a new insect.

$300 Giveaway From Vision Forum!!!

Dear Friends!!!

I wanted to let you know about the wonderful giveaway that Mrs. Crawford is doing on her blog today!!!  She's giving away $300.00 dollars for Vision Forum purchases.

If you have never visited Vision Forum, you are really missing out!!!  They sell wonderful games, dolls, movies, and BEST OF ALL Christian books!!!!!!!!!!  This is really great news for all my reader friends out there.

Hurry and enter and Generation Cedar!!!


Now there isn't very much to tell about insects in genirol.
 There are a lot of them. The insect population out numbers humans at about a hundred to one, and so I couldn't possibly cover all the insects, besides there really isn't that much to tell.

  Butterfly (I chose them because it's just a short post.), have thoughsands of tiny tiny little scales on their wings and that is why if you ever catch a butterfly by it's wings there is this fine powder left on your fingers.
  These scales help the butterfly fly and give it color.
 The scales them selves aren't colorful but GOD made them just right so that when they catch the light they turn that color.
Each kind of Butterfly has its own kind of scales that catch the light in just the right color.
  The butterfly's colors also help it to hide and defend it's self.

Happy Thanksgiving

This will be an extremely short post about the difference between bugs and insects.
 Bugs are a kind of insect that has wings that are thick at the base of the wing and thinner at the tip.
A water strider would be considered a bug, but a dragon-fly is really the best.

The study of insects is called: Entomology.  
Most everyone calls any insect that they see a bug, weather it's a beetle or an insect of a spider.
Just to start things off right, spiders are neither bugs, insects or beetles, they are Arthropods -or Arachnids. Now those come later so we aren't gong to cover them to day.
 Here's the basic run down.
Insects: Have a Head, a Thorax and a Abdomen. The Insect has two sets of wings. Now you must remember that there is always an exception to every rule - even in science, so later we might come across an insect that has three sets of wings.
The Beetles:
Beetles are often identified by the fact that they have a hard outer shell.

So there is a little on insects and bugs for now.

This is my seventieth post. 
 Now you are probably wondering why dinosaurs on fifth-flying-day? 
Now what makes the differences between dinosaurs and say a rhinoceros? 
 Well, dinosaurs were reptiles witch mint that dinosaurs were cold blooded, had scales and laid eggs. There were different kinds of dinosaurs just like different kinds of dogs of cats.
Now why did GOD pick dinosaurs to be extincted just like the Dodo bird? But I really don't know GOD just did. 
To be truthful not all the dinosaurs are gone. We still have the crocodile. It is considered a dinosaurs because of it's size, also the Komodo Dragon. 

 There are one or two storeys about dinosaurs around that people have found.
One was of some fisher men who pulled up a huge carcass of unknown origin. Because it stank so bad the men took pictures of it and through it back. 
Think of how much scientists could have learned from it.
Komodo Dragon.

 There's another story of a dinosaurs that people have reported still alive. This one was called the Lock Ness Monster.
This is an Inland Bearded Dragon.

Well, there were a few other storeys of dinosaurs that people have seen alive. We do know that dinosaurs did exist because first, GOD mentions them more then ones in the bible. And second we have founds bones and stuff of dinosaurs buried in the rock from the flood. 
GOD also says that dragons existed and that Michael the angel fought a dragon with seven heads.
But I really don't know why GOD picked the dinosaurs to go extincted but he just did. 
Okay, I know that I didn't do a post about the dinosaur's but there really isn't much of anything to tell about so we'll just leave it at that.

Microbats and Megabats

 There are two kinds of bats.
 The Megabat and the Microbat.
The Microbat is much smaller.
There are many ways to tell the difference.
The first is by the size.
While the Megabat is huge and has a wing span of  up to six feet, (That's a lot of wing!) the microbat is very small.
The magabats when it hangs upside down to sleep, it wraps its wings around it and the microbat folds his winds to his sides.
 While the Micro. uses echo location to find it's dinner of bugs, most Mega.s don't have to ability of echo location. -Instead the Megabat prefers fruit, and you don't need echo location to help you find nice sweet smelling fresh fruit.
scents the Megabat eats fruit, it doesn't need sharp teeth like the microbat. GOD gave the Megabat short flat teeth that can help it chew the fruit better.
I would really like to see a Megabat flying around my house one night but they only live in tropical arias.
The Megabat eats many tropical fruits that with out these kinds of bats, would eventually die out.
So we can know that GOD has a purpose for every animal on the earth great and small and we can know that no matter how insignificant we may seem, we still have a purpose here on GOD's great earth.

Bat's Ears and Echo location

It's a common fact that bats use Echo location to find bugs and avoid abjects that they might fly into while flying (Trees, rocks and the like.).
Actually most people think that bats can just barely see and that's why the need to use their echo location, but no. Bats really have very good eye sight, it's just that they can't see a little tinny gnat in the black of night.
Bats use a very loud shrill noise to detect bugs and objects that they will need to avoid.
 This sound is to high for us to hear put the bat hears it- almost too well. It's sound that it sends out is so loud  that a bat could go deaf from it.
 But GOD has already figured all that out.
 When to bat makes it's sound a little shield comes up and protects the bats ear from the sound. After the bat has sent it's sound out and is waiting for the echo the little shield comes back up so that the bat can hear the echo.
 Pretty cool! Isn't it just amazing that GOD has it all worked out and not one bat goes deaf because GOD forgot to put in that little peace.
 Sorry that there aren't any pictures, but if I find any I'll post them.

By the way this is a Microbat.

  Now, believe it or not, bats are part of the fifth day of creation.
 They are mammals,  but so are blue whales, and whales are certainly not part of the fifth day of creation.
  Bats are nocturnal mammals and most bats are no larger then six or seven inches from tip to tip.
  Bats- or most of them do not carry rabies. In the past 40 years only 40 people have gotten rabies from bats.
  People often get scared of bats especially a bat called a vampire bat, but bats are not human eaters and only eat bugs and fruit. Those bats that do eat blood only cut a small hole in the animal while it is asleep.  GOD made it so that the amount that the bat takes is not vital to the survival of that animal.
 Fruit bats pollinate and help to spread that seeds of rare fruit trees by first eating the seed then ...
 Well, we all know what happens next.
 Insect eating bats eat about six hundred insects in one hour, and they feed for about ten hours. All in all that equals 6,000 bugs per bats and there are about 20 million bats in Texas alone so that comes to a whole lot of bugs eaten every night.

There are about 900 species of bats.
  The bat is equipped with sharp little claws that allow it to hang upside down for long hours with no effort at all.
 So that's a little on bats for now.

Last day on Birds

Well, this is the last day on birds.
And for the last post on birds it will be about one of my favorites.
The Wood Pecker.
Now this might sound odd, but I think that this one of the most amazing Birds that GOD ever Made.
Pileated Woodpecker Okay, so it rams it's beak into a tree at - I don't know how fast, they bam their beak hard in, to be able to penetrate the bark of the tree and still don't get a headache. That's because GOD gave him a cushion in the back of it's scull that protects that little birds' poor brain from being shaken half way to Timbuktu.
If this isn't enough, the woodpecker then sticks its long sticky barbed tong into the tree and scoops out the insect.
So, how dose the Woodpecker keep the bark out of it's nose?
Well, GOD made the Woodpecker with tufts of feathers over it''s nose so that the bark wont go in.

CLASS: Aves (birds)
ORDER: Piciformes (woodpeckers)
FAMILY: Picidae (woodpeckers)
GENUS/SPECIES: Dryocopus pileatus
NAME OF ONE IN PICTURE Redheaded Woodpecker

Beaks Vs. Bills

For a very long time I have been wondering what the differences is between Beaks and Bills.
 But at long last I have found out.
 A Beak is sharp much like that of a Hawk. And a duck has a Bill flattish and often looks rather rubbery.
 Birds of the water have Bills and the others have Beaks!
Bills are most commonly used for scooping up small fish and other stuff from under the water. (This is why ducks and other water birds have them.)
 Beaks are used for cracking nuts and catching prey.
What do you think this bird has? A bead or a Bill.
So there you have it. The difference between BEAKS and BILLS.

How Is It that birds can fly?

    20. Then GOD said, "Let the waters abound with abound with an abundance of living creatures , and let birds fly above the earth across the fave of the firmament of the heavens"     21So GOD created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the water abounded according to their kind and every winged bird according to its kind And GOD saw that it was good.

SO, how dose a bird fly and where do bugs come into this?
This is how a bird is able to take flight.

Think you could do that?
Probably not.
 Well, whole thing is a a bird's fly muscles, and they are located in the bird's chest.
When you eat a chicken chest that is what you are eating.
You a Probably rethinking what you eat off of a chicken and Turkey. 
Well, the pink little thing is one of the chest bones of a bird.
The orange is humerus and it's attached to the wing part.
The light green smaller muscles is what conducts the up stroke and the dark red larger muscles
is for the down stroke.
Pretty cool!
