EEK! Look what I found!

These buggers (hehe) were in my skeeter tub. They're huge compared to the normal ones. I fed them to Figment, he's the only betta big enough to eat them. Anyone know what they are?

Might be dragon fly larvae. They're supposedly huge and can eat Betta fry.. those look like they could eat fry to me O.O

They're not dragonfly larva. I'm pretty sure they're some kind of mosquito just don't know what kind.

Mosquito hawks are Crane Flies. They don't look like that, the larve that is. Not sure what it is. Really ugly though. :P

Toxorhynchites speciosus? They prey on other mosquito larvae.

Those are called mosquito hawks too. Where I grew up we always called Crane flies mosquito hawks. So you were right, LittleBettas! :D
