The name probably makes you want to roll over in laughter….but the little guy is actually a very talented creature!
Somehow (don’t ask us) the tiny insect sings with it’s penis by rubbing it against it’s abdomen…..and according to a new study is the loudest creature on Earth, relative to its body size and the way in which it uses its penis.
Dr James Windmill, a researcher from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow claims that the bug can even be heard from long distances.
“It’s so loud, a person walking along the bank can hear these tiny creatures singing from the river bottom. If you scale the sound against their body size, they are the loudest on Earth.”
