Getting The Bugs Out

by | Sep 23, 2019 | Web Design | 0 comments

We’re spending some time in Burlington, Iowa this week doing some local research. On the way back to the car from the library we stopped to get a couple shots of this guy. You might say we’re getting the bugs out.

 

By any name, these fascinating insects are formidable predators. They have triangular heads poised on a long “neck,” or elongated thorax. Mantids can turn their heads 180 degrees to scan their surroundings with two large compound eyes and three other simple eyes located between them.

Typically green or brown and well camouflaged on the plants among which they live, mantis lie in ambush or patiently stalk their quarry. They use their front legs to snare their prey with reflexes so quick that they are difficult to see with the naked eye. Their legs are further equipped with spikes for snaring prey and pinning it in place.
