Fun Facts about Dragonflies

Fun Fact about Dragonflies:

  1. In their larval stage, which can last up to two years, dragonflies are aquatic and eat just about anything—tadpoles, mosquitoes, fish, other insect larvae and even each other.
  2. Dragonflies are expert fliers. They can fly straight up and down, hover like a helicopter and even mate mid-air. If they can’t fly, they’ll starve because they only eat prey they catch while flying.
  3. The average cruising speed of a large dragonfly species is around 9.9 miles per hour.
  4. A dragonfly will spend much of its life as a nymph (larva) in the water.
  5. Having a dragonfly land on your head is considered good luck.
  6. People in Indonesia like to eat them for a snack. (Eeeeeew, not my cup of tea) lol
  7. They need to warm up in the sun during the morning before taking off and flying for most of the day.
