Cicada Life Cycle


The adult cicadas that we see every summer have only one purpose -- to breed before the weather turns cold. The majority of this insect's life is spent underground feeding on roots. This display features every stage of the life-cycle including a scarred twig that housed eggs, a newly-hatched nymph, a mature nymph, the familiar, molted skin often seen on trees, and an adult. A self-contained lesson in metamorphosis and survival. 12" x 8".
