14. I am not any type of ant.
15. I am not a periodical cicada.
16. I am a cochineal beetle.

Congratulations to orangutan who figured it out. To all of you who suggested possibilities, thank you for participating.
And to GBS, "must be able to be answered" does not equal "will be answered" - it would have been easier for me to type just yes or no, but I prefer to make it easier for players in the game.

We weren't so squeamish when I was a kid. We knew pink cochineal colouring came from squashed beetles but it didn't bother us any. It's still in widespread use around the world. If it's a problem for Starbucks customers they must be pretty sooky.
