centaurs have six limbs and are therefore insects. discuss.
Oh. This. I don’t like this.
#not enough distinct body parts#insects have three#arachnids on the other hand have two#therefore i propose that centaurs are actually spiders hiding a pair of legs somewhere
this is worse
jade how did you manage to make this worse
But centaurs DO have 3 body parts. Insects have head, thorax, and abdomen. Centaurs have a head, a human “thorax”, and a horse “abdomen”.
Instead I propose that insects are arthropod centaurs.

Where are the
SEGMENTED BODY PARTS?
Want to drive yourself crazy? Count the number of legs on a butterfly.
This isn’t how phylogeny works
