This is a Dog-day Cicada. Which is part of the extreme family of the Cicada.
Who has heard a Cicada before? Well I am hearing one right now. Sometimes Cicadas can be annoying but there are interesting things about it. So the Cicadas are a SUPER family. You want to know why? Because there is a life cycle of Cicadas. I never thought that there would be a life cycle of a Cicada! One thing I've heard is that the Cicada lives under ground for 17 years! I know. The scientific name for the Cicada is Cicadidae. Very interesting. Did you know that Cicadas spend most of there time sucking xylum to get to the juices. (Xylum are like the veins of trees) So they are definitely tree vampires! Of course they make extreme noises in fact it sounds like a song! Hope you have enjoyed the interesting things about Cicada's.
