Home Bodies

Remember the little fire-fannied, early instar wheelbugs I posted about a while back? I got curious as to whether any of the little ones were still near the egg-mass so I stopped by for a look. There were about 15 or so of them still hanging around.

As you can see, they are getting bigger -- must be munching out on their own siblings. It's a bug-eat-bug world out there!

These are babies, the adults look completely different. And yes, they can bite!
