Dedicated to cicadas, the most amazing insects in the world.
Some folks will find this terrifying.
I have a cicada with only 4 legs… I feel very sorry for him.
Hello, I have a question, I found a LARGe Cicada yesterday on holloween here in mid-michigan, i believe it to be a 17 year cicada, but it just looks wierd, wings aren’t transparent & the thing is about 3 inches to the eyes to end of wings, & its body & legs are quite skinny looking.. Im guessing that cicadas start to die off around this time of year? Did i find one of the last? I can take pictures to find out what this wierd bug is & more info on it, havent found a picture that looked exactly like it yet & been searching for a while.. my email is DegreeOfExcellence@Gmail.com contact me & give me more info & i can also send a pic to get some info… But anyways for now this is my 4yo sons (4 on nov 3rd) alien bug & he wants me to feed it & i dont know what to give the thing lol, anyways im not quite sure its gona eat this time in its life anyways.. But like i say this thing is the biggest bug ive ever seen in my life!! freaked bunch of ppl out so far with it…
& from what i’ve read here this is true that its going to be another 4 yrs before these emerge again? also can i get some more info, just sum it up for me on their life cycle, after they turn into an adult & time of year that they do what…
I thought i always seen these things towards spring/summer? but maybe thats the anual ones? & what i’ve found here was a 17yr one??
anyways I look forward to getting some answers, this way i can inform everyone else as well ..
btw the front legs are really massive on this cicada…
hahaha! its Cute! Lovly Cicadas want to make halloween happy :)
