Notes on Ant-Lions

Abstract

In April 1944, while stationed with the Navy along Manzanillo Bay in Panama I became interested in the ant-lions which "den" in the dust under the coconut trees. In order to observe their digging operations I captured three and placed them in a tin can partly filled with dust. Watching them excavate their deadly pits, I noticed how perfectly spaced the holes were for use of the available space.
