167058 * The antlion pit

Try as we might, we were unable to find a moral in the story of this next little creature, the doodlebug. See, the Antlion Pit offers Wild Kingdom-type videoclips of antlions capturing prey, global maps of their territories, and tips on observing the critters in the wild. Watch as the dastardly antlion digs his deathtrap, waits motionless for days at a time, then rips wayward ants to pieces. Investigate antlion research centers from the sand flats of Albuquerque to the shifting dunes of South Africa. Learn about antlions in poetry and literature, including ancient Navajo myths, Anglo Saxon riddles, and the famous "Ask the Doodlebug" passage from Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer. Find the answer to the age-old question, "Is it an antlion or an ant?" And just in case you were curious about how to catch a doodlebug's attention: "an ant tossed into the pit will stir the antlion into action immediately." Wait. Maybe there is a lesson here: It sucks to be an ant. Or does it?
