Did you know that one of the most vicious underwater creatures on the planet is a juvenile dragonfly. Dragonfly nymphs are cold blooded killing machines. They scoot around underwater “jet propelled” by shooting water out of their rear ends. And during this lengthy period of adolescence, which may be well over two years, they are always on the hunt for their next meal. Your average dragonfly nymph will eat up to 300 mosquito larvae a day – a good thing unless you are a mosquito larvae! They will also eat tadpoles, newly emerging pacific chorus frogs, and small fish.These “babies” have extendable lower jaws called labium that they thrust out faster than prey can react. The labium is equipped with gripping sharp bristles that ensure that once captured, their prey is securely gripped. Seeing this happen on the NW Stream Center Auditorium big screen may bring back memories of the movie Alien!
After learning real science presented by the Adopt A Stream Foundation, you can settle in for some science fiction and enjoy the one hour and twenty minute black and white movie Creature of the Black Lagoon. In this fictional account of life under the water, scientists drug and capture the “creature” who becomes enamored with the head scientist’s female assistant. The creature escapes and kidnaps the object of his affection.
The Chief scientist then launches a crusade to rescue his assistant and cast the ominous creature back to where he came.Reservations are required for this entertaining Friday evening event by calling 425-315-8592; $5 Adopt A Stream Foundation Members; $7 non-members.
