 Book description

This book explores the life cycle of the pit-digging variety of antlion—the famous "doodlebug." Close-up photography provides views of physical details not apparent to the casual observer, including the large, spiny jaws of the predatory larva, the spherical cocoon, and the delicate, lacy-winged adult.

An excellent resource for biology teachers. Also makes a nice gift for bug enthusiasts of all ages!
