Planthoppers

A planthopper is any insect in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha, exceeding 12,500 described species worldwide. The name comes from their remarkable resemblance to leaves and other plants of their environment and from the fact that they often "hop" for quick transportation in a similar way to that of grasshoppers. However, planthoppers generally walk very slowly so as not to attract attention.

Look at this amazing prehistoric arthropod, Anomalocaris. Anomalicaris is an extinct genus of anomalocaridid, a family of animals thought to be closely related to ancestral arthropods. The first fossils of Anomalocaris were discovered in the Ogygopsis Shale by Joseph Frederick Whiteaves, with more examples found by Charles Doolittle Walcott in the famed Burgess Shale.Originally several fossilized parts discovered separately (the mouth, feeding appendages and tail) were thought to be three separate creatures, a misapprehension corrected by Harry B. Whittington and Derek Briggs in a 1985 journal article. #jurassicworld #jwtg #jurassicworldthegame #arthropods #cambrian #anomalocaris #follow4follow #followforfollow #followme #dinosaurs #fossil

A Dragonfly nymph lies in wait at the bottom of a shallow puddle. This is a member of the Skimmer family (F. Libellulidae), the most diverse family of Dragonflies in the world. Unlike adults, the nymphs are difficult to tell apart, and are typically only identifiable to the family level.

Like many other insects, Dragonflies actually spend more time as juveniles than as adults; nymphs may live for several weeks or months, or in some species, several years, before moulting into the adult stage, which, depending on the species, usually lasts for only a few days to a few weeks.

Dragonfly nymphs are ambush predators; they hide among debris and aquatic vegetation, waiting for prey to swim or crawl within striking range. Nymphs breathe by pumping water in and out of the anus; the gills are located in a chamber in the rectum. By suddenly expelling water through the anus, the nymph can propel itself through the water, allowing it to escape predators.

A Dragonfly nymph possesses an extendable mouthpart called the labium or mask, as it is typically folded up against the nymph's face when not in use. When the nymph strikes, it extends the labium, which reaches forward, grabs the prey (or impales it on sharp points), and then retracts, bringing the hapless victim to the nymph's mandibles, where it is then devoured.

Dragonfly nymphs are voracious predators of other aquatic creatures, including worms, insects and insect larvae, crustaceans, and tadpoles and small fishes. Larger nymphs may even prey on smaller nymphs, not just those of other species but their own as well.

Once the nymph is ready to metamorphose, it stops feeding, climbs out of the water, and the skin splits down the middle of the back, allowing the adult Dragonfly to emerge.

The Branded Imperial is a butterfly that lives in our forests, and can be seen fluttering along forest trails and forest fringes in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Central Catchment Nature Reserve, and the Southern Ridges. Its caterpillars feed on the young shoots of a common and abundant woody climber called the Bearded Smilax. Adult Branded Imperials are often seen licking the sap that oozes from the shoots that have been damaged by the caterpillars.

Pt. 7 don't know what he is, just know he likes cheez itz

Like on a cloud
she lives
The wind passes thru
as she spins
Gently sways the web
like a wave in dance motion
Her tippy toes do some locomotion
Eight legs ,
sans commotion.

The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Central Catchment Nature Reserve are the home of many Dragonfly and Damselfly species, like this Crescent Threadtail, a Damselfly that favours slow-flowing forest streams. While the creation of ponds and wetlands in parks and other urban landscapes can be good for aquatic biodiversity, they mostly benefit species that thrive in these open habitats. The nymphs of urban Dragonflies and Damselflies may be able to tolerate pollutants or greater fluctuations in temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen.

In contrast, forest species are usually more specific in their habitat requirements, are unable to adapt to such conditions, and remain restricted to small pockets of suitable habitat. This is why protecting our forest streams is so vital to the continued survival of so many of our native freshwater species; deterioration and degradation of their few remaining refuges can wipe out entire populations, already under great pressure from the loss of much of Singapore’s original forest cover, as well as possible impacts from climate change and invasive species.

There's more to arachnids besides Spiders (Araneae) and Scorpions (Scorpiones). These two groups, along with the Mites and Ticks (Acari) are among the most familiar and famous arachnids, but there are several other less well-known groups, some of which are known to occur in Singapore, like the Whip Scorpions (Thelyphonida or Uropygi). Containing about 100 species, found mostly in tropical and subtropical climates in Asia, the Americas, and a single species in West Africa, these nocturnal creatures dig burrows in the soil or beneath logs, rotting wood, and rocks. They are mostly forest inhabitants, although one species, Mastigoproctus giganteus, is known to inhabit deserts and other arid landscapes in the southern United States.

Like Scorpions, Whip Scorpions are predators, feeding on insects, spiders, and other arthropods, which they seize and crush with their pedipalps ('pincers'). They have the classic arachnid body plan - four pairs of legs, a cephalothorax (head and thorax), and an abdomen. Unlike Spiders and Scorpions though, the Whip Scorpion walks on three pairs of legs; the first pair of legs are elongated, and serve as sensory appendages, much like the antennae of insects. As it moves about, the Whip Scorpion taps the ground with its first pair of legs, which provides it with information about its surroundings, and helping it to detect any prey nearby.

Whip Scorpions derive their name from the long, thin flexible 'tail' at the tip of the abdomen. Unlike in the Scorpion, there is no stinger. If threatened by another animal, the Whip Scorpion will rear up and spread its pedipalps, threatening to pinch anything that comes too close. Alternatively, it can turn around and spray chemicals from a gland at the base of its tail. While this chemical discharge, which contains acetic acid, is harmless to the skin, it can cause severe discomfort if it manages to enter the eyes, mouth and nostrils. And so the Whip Scorpion repels predators with a concentrated vinegar spray; the strong smell of vinegar after a close encounter with a Whip Scorpion has led to it also being called the Vinegaroon.

Despite bearing a superficial resemblance to the Common Parasol, the male Sultan is twice as large, and is more than capable of preying on smaller dragonfly species. The Sultan is considered widespread but generally rare in Singapore, and is usually seen in forests, or around some ponds with dense vegetation.

Berberis Sawfly (Arge berberidis) - sitting on its host plant, the European barberry (Berberis vulgaris).

Sobreviviendo al frío.
Si bien, éstos animales son bastante resistentes y son capaces de soportar climas extremos (no de forma permanente, eh), se recomienda no arriesgarse y tomar medidas para que la temperatura de su terrario sea la adecuada para su especie.

Crayfish – 18 Vector Silhouettes http://vector-club.com/crayfish-18-vector-silhouettes

Let's talk about butts!
.
The sex of a flower beetle can be determined while still in their larval stage, by simply examining their butt.
Anyone can do it, but it needs a bit of practice or a trained eye let's say.
.
The bigger the larva, the easier it gets.
I have some beautiful mecynorrhina kraatzi larva at home. They are growing nicely and are now in their final larval stage (L3). .
The first picture is a m kraatzi male beetle (pic by petr malec).
In the next pics (swipe right) you will see butt pictures of my larvae. .
Left is a male larvae, on the right a female. .
The trick is to look for the Y shaped white form in the last segment.
Keep in mind i'm holding the larva upside down ;). If you see a dark dot inside the Y you're holding the male. No dot=female.
.
The dot is more pronounced than the dots where their hairs sprout from. It signifies what is commonly referred to as harold's gland. A gland within the male reproductive system.
