Random Thought #14: Fruit Flies

July 3, 2014

Fruit flies have an uncanny sense of smell.

Sometimes Random Thoughts lead to actual learnin’ – I just read that a large part of the fruit fly’s brain is dedicated to processing smells and it’s thought the fruit fly relies on smell more than any other sense. Smell is essential for them to find mates and avoid danger.

It also helps them find my wastebasket.

For the record, I will eat a Shoo-fly pie
