Santisuk Vibul sent us 3 photos of cicada tunnels/chimneys from Bangkok Thailand.
From Santisuk Vibul: “I found this cicada chimney on the lawn in front of my house on October 22, 2009. In Thailand, this month is late rainy season, there is no heavy rain and there will be no flood in the cicada tunnels, but the cicadas nymphs still build their chimneys. Some authorities said they built chimneys to stay to breathe and prepare themselves for their final molting.”
In this video we see a male and female Magicicada cicada mating.
