Hi Guys I’m Dan and today I am going to show you 10 Insects Surprise Toys hiding below these leaves. Ladybirds are found worldwide, with over 5,000 species discovered. If food is scarce, ladybugs will do what they must to survive, even if it means eating each other. A hungry ladybug will make a meal of any soft-bodied sibling it encounters. That is scary. Next we have a Grasshopper. Grasshoppers are insects with extremely powerful hind legs which enable them to escape from threats by leaping vigorously. A large grasshopper such as a locust can jump about a metre (twenty body lengths) without using its wings. Talk about a high jumper. There are over than 900 species of crickets described. Only male crickets chirp and do so to attract a female mate. Male crickets make their chirping noise by rubbing their wings together. They are considered to be a sign of good luck in many cultures including Japanese and Chinese. There are about 2,500 species of Cicadas described. They are commonly eaten by birds and sometimes by squirrels, as well as bats, wasps, mantids, spiders and robber flies. They do not bite or sting in a true sense, but may occasionally mistake a person’s arm for a plant limb and attempt to feed. Ants are capable of carrying objects which are 50 times their own body weight with their mandibles. That is very strong. Ants are present in almost every landmass on Earth. Their success in so many environments has been attributed to their social organisation. Wasps are a diverse group, estimated at over a hundred thousand described species around the world. Wasp nests made in or near houses, such as in roof spaces, can present a danger as wasps may sting if people come close to them. The Regal Jumping Spider, is a species of Jumping Spider. They have four pairs of eyes; three secondary pairs that are fixed and a principal pair that is movable. The eyes gives the spider a near 360-degree view of the world. Talk about Spider Sense. All honey bees live in colonies where the workers sting intruders as a form of defense, and alarmed bees release a pheromone that stimulates the attack response in other bees. Honey bees can fly at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour. An industrious worker bee may visit 2,000 flowers per day. Next we have a Praying Mantis. If you try to sneak up on a praying mantis, you may be startled when it looks over its shoulder at you. No other insect can do so. Praying Manstis have a flexible joint that enables them to swivel their heads. If a bee or fly happens to land within its reach, the praying mantis will extend its arms with lightning quick speed, and grab the hapless insect. Scorpions can use a sense of smell to find food and hide from danger. They rely on vibrations from their surroundings to help them determine what is taking place in their environment. It is true that a Scorpion is able to tell the difference between light and dark. Young Scorpions ride on their mother’s back for the first weeks of their life. The average lifespan in the wild for Scorpions is 3 to 8 years. Some have lived long years in captivity. Here are all the insects that I have shown you today. We have the Scorpion, Praying Mantis, Honey Bee, Jumping Spider, Wasp, Ladybird, Grasshopper, Cricket, Cicada, Ant. If you enjoyed this video, give it a thumbs up, share it and please subscribe.
