Wonderful Wacky Water Critters

Horsefly and Deerfly

The seldom found larvae of these flies hunt for worms and snails to eat. They don't look like ferocious predators, being almost headless, legless, wormlike animals, but that doesn't seem to stop them. They're usually found in swamps, small ponds and weedy places away from big carnivores like fish. These flies breathe through a small disc on their tails which they push up through the water's surface into the air.
