    Have any of you ever heard of doodlebugs or antlions. The're the same thing. Anyway I just ordered some of ebay. The're really cool. They catch things in their pits that they dig in the sand.

    People are SELLING antlions?? Geez...we had 'em in the backyard by the scores when I was a kid.

    Hey...maybe I can catch some of the bugs in my house and sell them on eBay.

    Antlions are cool though.

    We have them all over our 5 acres! They are real cool though especialy the adults that look like a cross between a dragonfly-wasp-and moth like the adult Chykka on Metroid prime 2 echoes Lol.

    They aren't rare around the area I live in as long as you get out of the city.

    The adults look kind of like someone took a dragonfly...stretched it, twisted the head off, and switched it for something....I'm not sure what!
