Dragonfly facts:

The Scientific Name of the Dragonfly is Anisoptera. They live on every continent but Antarctica, you can recognise these insects instantly by their large bodies; they have four long, horizontal wings; and they hover and zip around. Dragonflies can reach speeds of up to 35 miles an hour and fly just as gracefully backward by lifting off vertically, like a helicopter. Each of their eyes has about 28,000 single eyes! Around 7,000 species of true dragonflies are alive today,

Dragonflies begin their lives in the water. Around midsummer, females hover over bodies of fresh water and dip in their abdomens, laying eggs that will come out in about seven to eight days. These larvae stay in the water for up to three years, hunting aquatic insects, mosquito larvae, or small fish with a lower jaw that reaches out and opens up sideways, snatching prey into their mouths. They may even cannibalise other dragonfly nymphs.

These larves propel themselves quickly by sucking water into their abdomen and then spitting it out. They undergo between six and 15 molts before emerging as fully formed adult dragonflies, a process that takes about 12 hours. Adults live only about a month, hunting flies, mosquitos, and midges. Their arms slant upward, forming a type of basket and enabling them to scoop up prey in flight.

Together with our small dragonflies collection you can make a room full of dragonflies.
