Tiger Beetle – A life History Video
Fascinating film documents, in incredible detail, the life history of the Green Tiger Beetle (Cicindela campestris) from egg to adult, and its relationship with its prey and its parasitoid. Text is scientifically accurate, presented in an accessible and engaging manner, making it equally useful to students, professional entomologists and interested amateurs. Remarkable photography by Gerald Thompson OBE FRPS includes almost every aspect of feeding, mating and defense behavior of adult beetles. Also features footage of the parasitic wasp Methocha which masquerades as prey, then turns the tables on its predator, using the beetle’s carcass to feed its own larva. VHS; stereo, approximately 18 minutes.
