MuseumEdit

An information board in the bug exhibit will provide information about this bug.

"Banded dragonflies have black-and-yellow-striped bodies and bright-green eyes. They are large and can fly quite fast. They have strong jaws, so it might be painful if you're bitten. Their larval stage lasts two to four years, where they live near water, feeding on tadpoles and small fish."

In real lifeEdit

BandedDragonflyIRL

The Banded Dragonfly is a species of dragonfly found in China, Guandong, Guangxi, Japan, Taiwan, and Southern Far East Russia. It is also known as the Golden-ringed Dragonfly, Jumbo Dragonfly, Siebold’s Dragonfly, or Oniyanma (オニヤンマ) in Japan.

The larvae will live for three to five years, moulting as many as ten times and growing as large as 5cm in length. Once this size, the larvae will feed on tadpoles and small fish. Adults can grow between 9.5 and 10cm in length. Adult dragonflies can mate and lay eggs within one to two months of metamorphosis. After mating, females head toward small creeks or ponds, not fast-moving rivers or lakes, to lay eggs. They will sometimes fly perpendicularly to the water, laying their eggs in mud or sand under the surface.
