So we had a collecting field trip today and…
Classmate: “I feel like we’re in Pokemon.”
TA: “Pokemon was created by a amatuer entomologist.”
Seriously, I have one of the best TAs ever and I really like my entomology class. I only wish my professor would hurry up and grade our exams. I wanna know my grade.
I tell my students every year to treat their collections (they turn in a collection at the end of the semester) like Pokemon. You gotta catch’em all! They can also trade insects for their collection. I do warn them against battling their bugs, especially with hymenopterans lol
