This is the second bug shell – intact except for the “exit hatch” out the back – that we’ve found around the house. The analogies are many, but I’ll save those for now; just thought it was cool.

  1. these things are everywhere in our yard as well. in august there will be a zombie conga line going up every tree trunk. interesting creatures they are, what with their prime number life cycle & all.

  2. Thanks for the link, Tyler. I’m not much of an entymologist, so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Did you see the animation of the cicada molting on the Wikipedia link?

  3. Now that is cool!
