In the Amazon rainforest there lives a tiny frog, the Lithodytes lineatus, which runs a little under 2 inches in length at its max, which has what amounts to a kind of invisibility cloak that allows it to live amongst the deadly and very territorial leaf-cutter ants without being beaten to a pulp. It tends to live in piles of leaf litter, which happens to be very desirable real estate in the rainforest, particularly for the leaf-cutter ants. When scientists noticed that this tiny frog was somehow able to live amongst these ants unmolested, they decided to find out what exactly was protecting them from being attacked.
A team of researchers took four related species of frogs including the Lithodytes lineatus, and tested them against the onslaught of the leaf-cutter ants. After the initial tests where they left the frogs in open-mouthed glass containers near a leaf-cutter ant nest, they began to suspect that the Lithodytes lineatus were able to escape the ants notice by producing a recreation of the ants own pheromones, essentially making the frog “invisible” to the ants.
To test out this theory, the researchers then created an extract of this frog skin and bathed other completely unrelated frogs in the skin extract and set them near the leaf-cutter ants’ nest. None of the frogs bathed in the extract were bitten by the ants. Move on over Harry Potter, there’s a new magician in town!
Can you think of any other animals or insects with built in protection against other insects or animals?

Suge Knight has filed a lawsuit against Dr. Dre, claiming that Dre hired a hitman in an attempt to murder Knight, TMZ reports.
Knight is the rap mogul who cofounded Death Row Records, which at one time included Dr. Dre on its roster. Knight alleges in the new suit that Dre hired a hitman to kill him because Knight had a lifetime management deal with Dre, which entitled him to 30% of Dre’s entertainment earnings.
Knight further claims that Dre ordered the alleged hit because he was trying to cut Knight out of earnings for Beats By Dre, in part because Apple, which bought Beats for $3 billion in 2014, didn’t want to do business with Knight.
The alleged hit was to happen during the weekend of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Knight claims, when he was shot several times.
Knight also alleges that in 2015, when Knight hit two men with his car, killing one and injuring the other, he was attempting to get away from an ambush. He claims one of the men was ordered to murder him. Knight is currently in jail on a charge of murder.
Knight is suing for $300 million, or 30% of Dre’s $1 billion take in the sale of Beats to Apple, according to TMZ.
A lawyer for Dr. Dre told Business Insider in a statement, “Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge’s lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance.”

Although the human eye cannot perceive its beauty, the wings of a male fruit fly are hiding a beautiful design of swirling bright colors. And it seems that these colorful wing designs serve a purpose, and that purpose is to attract females.
This hidden array of colors located on the wings of fruit flies has only been recently discovered by researchers at Lund University. The wings of the fruit fly are very thin and transparent. When the transparent wings are held against a black backdrop the various color patterns become visible. The colored wings have only been observed as belonging to small insects, such as flies and wasps, which have wings that measure at only a few nanometers.
Researchers at Lund University have also recently determined that the color scheme visible on the wings of fruit flies has a marked effect on female sexual selection. Researchers are now interested in how fruit flies behave around various shades of light since the colors only become visible under certain lighting conditions.
Why would the various wing-colors appear only on small insects with very thin wings, and not larger insects with thicker wings?
