The world of insects is a universe of a lot of dangers. Where every day is a fight - a fight for the own survival. Nature is really surprising, as each species has been able to adapt to its environment by developing different kinds of defense or attack mechanisms.
With this project I would like to present three insects with unusual characteristics. Let me make you discover the magical world of insects!
Scolopendra gigantea is the largest centipede pecies in the world, with a lengh exceeding 30 centimeters.
It is made up of 22 to 23 pairs of razor sharp legs and has extremely potent venom. It has armor resistant to all tests.
It is found in various places throughout South America and the Caribbean, where it preys on a wide variety of animals, including other sizable arthropods, amphibians, mammals and reptiles.
The European Mantis.
The European mantis is a large hemimetabolic insect of the family of the Mantidae, which is the largest family of the order Mantodea. Their common name 'praying mantis' is derived from the distinctive posture of the first pair of legs that can be observed in animals in repose. It resembles a praying attitude. Both males and females have elongated bodies with two pairs of wings. The most striking features that all Mantodea share are a very mobile, triangular head with large compound eyes and their first pair of legs, which is highly modified for the efficient capture and restraint of fast-moving or flying prey.
The weaver ant.
Weaver ants or green ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae.
They live in trees and are known for their unique nest building behavior where workers construct nests by weaving together leaves using larval silk. Colonies can be extremely large consisting of more than a hundred nests spanning numerous trees and containing more than half a million workers. Like many other ant species, weaver ants prey on small insects.
Weaver ants vary in color from reddish to yellowish brown dependent on the species, they are highly territorial and workers aggressively defend their territories against intruders.
Although weaver ants lack a functional sting they can inflict painful bites and often spray formic acid directly at the bite wound resulting in intense discomfort.
This set has the objective to be educational and decorative, I hope this project will sharpen your curiosity and help the most phobic of you to overcome their fears.
The number of pieces is 1790.
