The peanut-head bug is known by many names: the lantern fly, the snake cicada, and the flying snake, to name a few. Its enlarged head, resembling the bulbous end of a peanut shell, has been the subject of both myth and scientific inquiry. Though many misconceptions surround this mysterious bug, in truth it is a harmless, plant-sucking creature. Readers will chuckle at this odd-looking insect, while learning about its habitat, tools of self-defense, and life cycle.
