The Hardcore Crickets That Only Live on Bare Lava
Build your own website today at https://wix.com/go/scishow. Some animals live in pretty extreme places, but the lava cricket might be the most hardcore of them all. These crickets have only been observed right after volcanic eruptions, and scientists have questions, like “How does a flightless insect appear on freshly-cooled lava?” Hosted by: Olivia Gordon SciShow has a spinoff podcast! It's called SciShow Tangents. Check it out at http://www.scishowtangents.org
