Liz : my guess is that they look like that to appear inedible, something
like space alien, plastic toy, or micro bomb mimicry. I know that I
don't have the guts to eat one, and crows probably only use them for
toys. so the only real threat is from other arthropods because they're
already in on the scam. I dare you to try one. Bill
