The sometimes grotesque effort to survive

Survival against the odds sometimes takes on a grotesque aspect.  

“How is that thing even still alive?” a person will say, wonder mixed with horror, watching the dried out, half-eaten creature dragging itself along by its remaining limbs.

The will to live is strong and does not, after a certain point, obey the dictates of good taste.  It is no surprise that we sometimes prefer to look away.
