This video captured by Texas Wild, introduces you to the Ant-Lion. An insect that is quite common, but not easily recognized due to its changing appearance during each stage of its life cycle. The Ant-Lion begins as a larvae, also known as doodlebugs, that create a cone shaped pit for prey capture. The larvae builds the pit by crawling backwards throwing out sand by tossing its head back. The name doodlebugs comes from the marks left in the sand from the larvae as its crawls through the sand looking for a location to dig its pit. Once in the pit, the larvae burrows down to the bottom and waits for prey to crawl by. The sides of the pit are constructed to the verge of collapse, making it almost impossible for the prey to crawl out once they have slide down into the pit. The size of prey will increases as the larvae matures. The larvae will build larger pits in order to accommodate large prey size. The larvae will mature into an adult ant lion, after emerging from a cocoon made of sand.
