Do insects have muscles?
I just watched this lady repair a butterfly's broken wing with a feather. It took a lot of practice for the butterfly to be able to fly again.

Was is building it's muscles to be able to fly again? Do they have muscles? If not, how do they move without muscles? Does science even have the answers?

Ever see an ant easily toting something about 4-5 times bigger than him?

You can watch a YT video but you can’t google such a simple question?

re: Do insects have muscles?
Do bugs have muscles? ... In humans, our muscles are attached to our bones through connective tissue called tendons, but in arthropods, their muscles are connected by small hooks to the inside of their exoskeletons. Despite our differences, bugs move just like we do: by contracting and relaxing their muscles

I stopped trusting what google tells me 7 years ago.

I have but I've never seen one ant that looks more muscular than another.

I do know spiders legs work by something similar to hydraulics; which is why when they die their legs fold under.
