The Feelings Of Insects

It seems to me that insects feel emotion*; the terror of a little spider trapped in my bathtub, crouching under my looming shadow, raising its tiny legs to combat my gigantic fingers coming at it, then the amazement it feels when dropped outdoors from the soft folds of a tissue, stunned with relief, then panicked as it scrambles to hide itself from other predators.

I clearly see emotion when watched by the gleaming eyes of a spider, a spider that shares 60± % of its DNA with us.

I believe insects feel emotion.
