Entomology (Study of Bugs)/Bugs
Hi. So today I had a drink (monster energy) and I pored it into a cup before I left. I came back a few hours later. I had a bag over my drink because my dad hates it when I drink entergy drinks (I'm 13 by the way) anyway I took the bag off the cup to see a (what I thought was a little bug) I thought It was a fly so I tryed grabbing it out but I accidentally knocked it my drink and it started swimming around. I looked at it more closly and saw it had a long body and a little head with three legs on each side. It played dead a few times. And then it started getting fatter. I was so nervous around it about an hour later I gathed up the cup and dumped it in the toilet and the bug was swimming around (again) and I nodiced that it's body was a shade of red...I don't know what it is and I'm freaking out. It would be great if you could awnser this question :) thank you for your time.
sorry - can't identify it from the photo. With 3 legs on each side, it's an insect for sure. If you send a sketch or good photo I may be able to ID it. Most insects have a very slow metabolism and can live for a long time sitting on top of a cup of water or other liquid.
