In weird news you probably didn’t need to know, scientists say insects can actually repair their own limbs.
When insects break a limb, they can’t get a cast like we do, instead they can patch themselves up from the inside. These patches can restore up to 66 percent of a leg’s former strength, according to a new study.
Insects such as locusts that have an exoskeleton, have a external support called a cuticle that when cut secretes new endocuticle which covers the cut and hardens, to restore the limb.
