Small Five – Little Lion

The Antlion forms part of the small five. Have you ever heard of a “doodlebug”? If you have then you’ve already heard of the Antlion’s larvae.
2,000 different species of Antlion are spread throughout the world but not all species build sand traps. The adult Antlions can reach a length of 4 cm and their larvae can grow 1.2 cm in length.
Their habitat is dry sandy areas where they can dig their pits. Antlion larvae are predatory -and use their pits to capture unsuspecting ants – while the adult stage feeds on nectar and pollen. The adult’s abdomen is long and slender with multi-veined wings; they have been said to resemble dragonflies

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount
    work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have
    any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

    Thankyou!
