It just came across the AOL news service--a huge swarm of locusts has 
descended upon Cairo.  A quote from the article: " [Christian] Pantenius said the 
locusts were showing no sign of moving farther south along the agriculturally 
rich Nile River valley, and he predicted the swarm most likely would head 
southeast toward the Red Sea coast, which is an annual locust breeding ground between 
November and March.

Locusts, which normally live between two and six months, eat their weight - 
about 0.07 ounces - in crops every day. They can travel as much as 120 miles in 
a day."
