is with these dragonflies.

For example,

this dragonfly's skin

has a hard,

armor-like exoskeleton

to defend against...

And this species

of dragonfly

has enormous strength

for its size.

It can lift vast amounts.

More than it's body weight.

And here we've injected the DNA

from all three species

into seven

new genetically-enhanced

super dragonflies.

But there's

only six in there.

Well, one missing dragonfly

is the least of my concerns.

I lost six tigers alone

last month.


This area is where

we keep our livestock.


Aren't you going

to do something?

Soon as I get

Oh, Rick.

We were wondering

It's so late.

About time you got home.

Your aunt was getting worried.

You can sleep late

in the morning,

but don't forget

to feed the fish.


I don't know.

Something just doesn't seem

quite right with him today.


I'll talk to him.

Rough day, huh?

Well, I won't lie to you.

Puberty is

a difficult time

in a young man's life.

Now this book may explain

what's happening.

Let's see.

There are mood swings, fluid retention,
