Antlion larvae are well-known predators that inspire countless movie / video game monsters but then their adult form is just a damselfly with anxiety

This is funny cuz it’s true

VICIOUS HUNTER!

JAWS OF TERROR!

pppbbbbtttttttttt

bbbbttttthhhhhhhhhhbbppppttttttt

although, to be fair…

BUTT SCOOT OF … uh… um… 

funny thing about the ferocious larvae, they can only move backwards. And in little short scoots. The second you dig them out of their little funnel, they freak out and just want to bury themselves, They are only powerful when they remain unseen.

Poetic?

Note: very few species actually make the funnels! But the ones that make the funnels, OH BOY DO THEY MAKE FUNNELS!
