1. Identify this aquatic macroinvertebrate.
2. What stage of its life cycle is it in?
3. Describe the specimen's life cycle.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I'm learning stuff about oceanography, saltwater, and birds, yay for the third time!

1. Whirligig beetle
2. Larva
3. Idk what you're looking for so I'll say complete metamorphosis.
If life gives you melons, you're dyslexic.

Why can't dinosaurs ski? Because they're dead.

2. True or False: The adult of the above macroinvertebrate is nicknamed the "mosquito lion" for the amount of the pest they consume daily.
3. Define cone of depression.

3. Define cone of depression.
1. I believe that it's a crane fly larvae (due to the wispy tail)
2.True
3. I'm not too sure, but maybe it's when the ground settles inward due to some man made structure?

1. Correct
2. False 3. An area's water table is lowered when water is pumped excessively, creating a dip in the water table known as the cone of depression, also shown here.
