Water Scorpion

RikenMons blog Riet

In the Netherlands we visited the Wieden, a nature reserve near Zwolle. While resting from an interesting walk we spotted a Water Scorpion, not a real scorpion, but the shape is similar with its large tail and legs. That tail is actually a tube to breath through! It can’t swim well, can’t walk well and hardly flies. Still it manages to catch prey with its large front legs and as you can see with success. We have added the water scorpion to the bugs section.
