Creative Strategies for Life

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, meet some creatures that seem more wise and powerful in dealing with the problems of living than seems reasonable.

Creative Strategies for LifeWhen threatened with parasites, some creatures change their method of reproduction to put the parasites at a disadvantage. Several types of fungus infect some grasses, producing poisons. However, these poisons don’t harm the infected grass. Instead, they protect the grass from insects and other enemies. This makes it less likely that the fungus will lose its happy home.

A New Zealand freshwater snail can reproduce with or without fertilized eggs. However, in those lakes where the snail is threatened by a parasitic worm, the snail uses only fertilized eggs, increasing the likelihood that some of the offspring will be able to resist the parasite.

These are just a few of many examples revealing that the Creator is glorified even in the relationships between parasite and host!
