Doodlebugs

While talking to a neighbor, his grandson noticed little conical holes in the bare garden soil.

We took a stick and explored the pits and found this at the bottom.


The boy said he'd seen these creatures on Animal Planet TV.
That they dig pits to capture their prey.
Sure enough, he was right.
These are antlions, also called doodlebugs!
