    • Lurker111

      “And way creepier to watch.”

      Especially when they breed.

  • Kevin R. Cross

    Cool, yes. but now haver it do something wheels or treads don’t do better.

    • Richard Raymond

      • Kevin R. Cross

        For goodness’ sake, it is not reasonable to complain about one mistyped letter and one mis-capitalization!

  • Spooky Tran
