    9. Insect flight muscles

    Most insect species have wings as adults and are able to fly. Unlike birds and bats, insect wings are not modified fore limbs, but are extensions of the cuticle of the meso- and meta-thoracic segments. These two thoracic segments also have prominent muscles used for generating the wingbeat Flight muscles of bats and birds attach directly to the wings, and pull the wings up and down. In insects, only dragonflies and damselflies have muscles attached directly to the wing and these muscles only produce the downstroke for the wingbeat.

    Ticket to Ride: The Deal

    Hi! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table, and this is Ticket to Ride, a set-collecting board game for 2-5 players where you travel along train routes.

Well, does it sound interesting? If you want to learn…
