What survival skill do you imagine developing and why? Poison quills? Exoskeletons? Facultative diapausal capacity?
Quills is archaism. Audience may not know what it means. "Quills are organic breakaway 'darts,' usually barbed and sometimes containing irritants or toxins, especially in marine species."
Oh, thanks, Shelob! Yeah. Where did you quote that from?
Unerased wikipedia article. No author or screen name listed.
Ah. Besides the question today, it's 'soapbox' time. Giving credit where credit is due is not being magnanimous or scholarly. It's basic ethics. Humanity has one chance, in my opinion, of staying worthwhile as a species. That chance is avoiding complete moral backsliding.
Faddy issues make little difference in the long run. Law will never catch up to the pathetic perversions possible to the criminal mind. Churches will never convert everyone. Governments will always have ideological differences with each other and their dissatisfied minorities.
The key to true advancement of the human species is early moral training.
Herr D was kind enough to share a wonderful example: all it takes to kill a human being is a mosquito infected with malaria, doctors and nurses have to go to special schools and become good at their jobs to heal those people. So--destruction requires something as pathetic as a stupid bug. Keeping people alive requires hard work, brains, skills, and minor heroism.

Tell that to every kid so they understand it by age 4? Maybe crime will go down. Good luck, parents.
