In a big week for the animals in the sport, the most Disney Pixar moment among them was Victor Robles’ unexpected companion during the National vs. Phyllis game. During the eighth inning on Monday night, it became clear that a big praying mantis had taken a seat at the center fielder’s market. While it’s not clear when the Robles became aware of Stowe, match participants quickly cut the scars with gratitude for getting footage of the pair.
The footage shows Mantis sitting on top of the Robles, not like Remy, a gastronomically curious rat in Disney Pixar’s rattlesnake. Not sure if the hat passenger gave Robles a sporting advantage, the two made up quite a few teams as the center fielder made sure his curiosity was at the top of the game, letting him know the number of outs.
It may seem impressive that such a spindly insect can sit so comfortably on a baseball cap for an entire inning, but another recent video has shown the incredible power of leggy boogie things. In a tweet that has sparked sympathy in the hearts of thousands of people; a stick bug is seen clinging to a moving car plane for a favorite life. The incredible foot adhesive of the stick insect is facilitated by two wet and practically different pads on the same foot, one of which aids in sticking and the other aids in sticking. The technique is very different from geckos, which use dry sticky pads on their toes to hold (and tail!).
Insects this week weren’t just baseball-crashing animals, as a cat appeared at Yankee Stadium – it revealed the tragic defenses of three players trying to reign with caps and more suspiciously one foot. Even the Olympics were briefly deprived of wildlife appreciation, as a camera operator’s decision to catch a spectacular cockroach at the last minute of a field hockey game received mixed reactions on the internet.
While the potential highlight of someone’s sporting life was probably not the ideal time to start flexing your wildlife videography skills, it was nice to see the little boys get some big-time for a big change.
