This animal is called a ‘Brown Marmorated Stink Bug’ or simple called the ‘Stink bug’.

Wiki Time:

The stink bug’s ability to emit an odor through holes in its abdomen is a defense mechanism meant to prevent it from being eaten by birds and lizards. However, simply handling the bug, injuring it, or attempting to move it can trigger it to release the odor.

Hence the name… Stink bug!

 

Though they may be considered pests. These bugs are actually fascinating creatures, and can also teach us morals and lessons.

Here is a short film of ‘Hermie and Friends’ about Stanley the Stink Bug.

Stanley the Stinkbug Goes to Camp, the sixth episode of Christian theologian Max Lucado’s CG-animated children’s series Hermie and Friends tells the humorous story of the insect Stanley the Stink Bug, a new arrival at Camp Bug-a-Boo whose fellow campers have difficulty handling his unpleasant stench – until God teaches everyone that Stanley only stinks because of his fear that the others won’t like him. This program teaches young viewers that the Lord made each of us special and that we must accept each other in spite of our differences. For two of its lead voices, the film sports the vocal talents of comic greats Tim Conway and the late (and beloved) Don Knotts, who had teamed up years prior in a series of comedy classics for Disney, including The Apple Dumpling Gang, and later headlined and 1979’s The Prize Fighter and 1980’s The Private Eyes. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

This reminds me of one time I had a friend, who’s smell is… not that appealing, even the teacher herself disliked the smell and rudely asked the girl “Why do you smell like that?” and the girl replied nonchalantly (as if, used to this type of treatment) “I do not know”.

I was young that time, 6 years old. I remember gossiping about the girl to my Best friend (who is now in the Philippines) “She smells really bad” I say, but my BF scolded me and said “She is my friend also and is very nice, treat her nicely.”

God made us for a purpose, and whenever we feel left out or alone, just remember that God is always there for you.
