Antlions are the larval stage of lacewing like insects in the family Myrmeleontidae. They make their living as sit-and-wait predators, catching and eating ants. This video shows their prey capture strategies.
Most of this video is filmed in super-slow motion at 400 to 600 frames per second.
A series of student co-produced videos made during the 2015 Ant Course. They showcase three aspects of what the Ant Course is all about: learning about myrmecology, ant natural history, and techniques for studying ants.
