Title P. favieri calling behavior
Description In this video the larva balances on its hind legs and urogomphi as it lifts its head and thorax into the air, moving from side to side while opening and closing its mandibles, and waving its mid and fore legs. We interpret this to be a "calling behavior."

Tree of Life Media Use Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help us improve the ToL media collection. We are trying to find out what kinds of people are using our images, movies, sounds, etc., what they are using them for, and what we could do to make the collection more useful to them.

How do you use this movie? If you are a teacher/professor/librarian: At what level do you teach/learn? How old are you? Where in the world do you live/learn/teach? Do you have any suggestion on how we could improve the Tree of Life media collection?
