Dragonfly

HbitatThe dragonfly lives outside of the littorl zone. But the female dragonfly lays her eggs on the water. I hope the eggs don't drown!

Prey and Predators

The Dragonfly's prey are bugs,crickets,mosquitos and their larvae,tadpoles,small fish,worms,gnats,mayflies,small amphibians and sometimes, bees and butterflies! BUT they are hunted too. Their main predators are robberflies, spiders,least grebes,golden cheeked warbler,other bigger canibal dragnflies,pondhawks, and the sundew entrapping taiga bluet.

MatingDragonflies have complicated courting rituals that begin with males moving the sperm along the body with their front legs. The insects often create a heart-like shape when mating as the female bends her body toward the male. Many species of dragonfly are very aggressive before and during the mating process,which can lead to injury or even death for the female.
