EARWIGS AMAZING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 22 January 1929

EARWIGS AMAZING FEAT. ? « ? Some interesting experiments were made some time ago to test the strength of various animals and in sects, and the results are astonish ing. It is estimated that a man or a horse can pull five times his own weight. A caterpillar was yoked to a loaded toy cart weighing 465 grains and this caterpillar pulled twenty five times its own weight. A blowfly which only weighed one grain managed to pall a .miniature railway truck weighing 170 grains, 170 times its own weight, while a beetle pulled 182 times its own weight and a bumble bee towed a small truck weighing 300 times as much as be did. All these records, however, are beaten by the earwig, which, though only weighing half a grain, pulled a toy coach weighing 265 grains, or 530 times its own weight !
