Advertisement They indeed have a fascinating threat response -- fly about in a crazy circle, then if the intruder doesn't leave, drop and run. Sadly, I discovered for all of that, they are very fragile creatures. I tried to capture one in a vending machine area where someone might "clean it away" to bring to my desk and somehow, in putting a cup over it to capture it, I killed it. I am generally very good with this and if I ever killed a creature in my capture attempts, it was in childhood longer ago than I recall. I hoped at first this was just another stage of it's defense -- to play dead. I brought it out of its container at my desk, hoping it would suddenly take off, but it remained still. I could see no evidence of damage -- I hadn't squished it! -- and proceeded to gently touch it. Four of its legs fell off. I feel like a monster.
