Meet the Morphoids: Bovinae

Meet Bovinae.

Bovinae is another Morphoid we really don’t know much about.  He does not have a traditional limb structure, but seems to move by throwing his weight around, in a sort of waddle.

Bovinae Footage

This is footage someone sent to us this week…. He said was really excited because he caught this thing on camera, and it was like nothing he’d ever seen before.  We’ve seen it before though- it’s Bovinae!  It must not have seen the videographer, though, because it didn’t freeze.  The few times we’ve seen Bovinae, he’s been almost completely still.

Question: How did Bovinae get it’s name?

Texas Longhorn

Bovinae reminded us of the horns of cattle.
