Dragonfly Wings - 18,000 Views!

Hello Jammers! Jammie263 here!

First off, I'd like to say to all of you guys that I have sad news:

Areyoukittenmeh quit! I think so at least.. she actually made a post about her password, but deleted it, and I'm not ever using her account.

Anyway, I don't know why I do know she got scammed a while ago, so maybe that's the reason.

She doesn't have any items if you search her up too, so I'm assuming she recycled them or gifted them.

She deleted me, and probably everyone else meaning I have figured out one old buddy who is no longer my buddy. (when I went online a while ago, I lost 6 buddies)

Also, this blog now has over 18,000 views! We are so close to 20,000 views, I feel like it's right in my grasp! Thanks everyone for your support, and sorry that I always say this:

You guys are awesome!

Well, onto the daily news..

As you may realize, they are from Epic Wonders. 3,000 gems is a lot, but I went into Jamaa anyways to buy it and show you guys a picture of what they looked like on an animal.

I lucked out though, because somebody I met already had them on:

Here is what they look like on the fox, but I'm guessing they look something like this one every animal too. 

For the profile, the body part of the dragonfly you can see on the foxes' back, and the wings are slanted for the fox.

I hope this helps, and please if you'd like to show this on your blog too— give me credit, and hopefully a link to this blog (optional).

Some fun facts and myths I found online at this website (click here):

Facts and Myths About Dragonflies

Tons for amazing dragonfly facts in this interesting article full of facts and myths.
There are lots of fun and interesting facts about dragonflies. Some facts about dragonflies are scientifically proven facts and some are actually myths about dragonflies that have been around for as long as hundreds of years. Can you tell the difference between the myths and the facts about dragonflies?
  1. A bee flaps its wings about 300 times per second, but a dragonfly flaps its wings at only about 30 beats per second. (fact, dragonflies have two sets of wings so they don’t have to beat them as much to fly.)

  2.  A dragonfly is a very strong and good flyer, and can fly at speeds of up to 36 miles per hour. (fact, but not all dragonflies are that fast – one was clocked at this speed in Australia)
  3. Dragonflies are known as snake doctors because they can bring dead snakes back to life. (myth)

  4. There were huge dinosaur dragonflies that lived 300 million years ago. (fact – the largest fossil found had a 2 ½ foot wingspan, and currently there are dragonflies in Costa Rica that measure 7 ½ inches across the wings.)

  5. Dragonflies have huge stingers and some people are allergic to their stings and can die. (myth – the thing that looks like a stinger on a dragonfly is actually called a clasper and the male dragonfly uses it to hold onto the female when they are mating.)

  6. There are about 5,000 different species of dragonflies all over the world except in Antarctica. 450 of the species can be found in the United States and about 80 species in British Columbia. (fact, most of the 5,000 species are found in remote, tropical areas.)

  7. A dragonfly’s eyes have about 30,000 lenses and a dragonfly can see all the way around it, but they don’t see details very well. (fact, a human eye only has one lens and sees better than a dragonfly, but only to the front and side of them.)

  8. From the time a dragonfly egg hatches, it can live anywhere from six months to six years, but only about two months as an actual dragonfly. (fact, most of the time spent is as a nymph in the water before the dragonfly’s metamorphosis into a full grown dragonfly.)

  9. In the old days, dragonflies would seek out bad kids and sew their mouths together with their claspers while they slept. Dragonflies were known as the devil’s darning needles. (myth – dragonflies don’t have pockets to carry the thread to the beds of sleeping wicked children.)

  10.  A dragonfly’s scientific name is Odonta, which comes from the words “tooth-jawed” because the entomologist (insect scientist), Johann Christian Fabricius, who named them studied the dragonflies’ mouths in order to distinguish the different species. Now their wings are studied as well to classify dragonflies. (fact – other names for dragonflies around the world are water dipper in England, old glassy in China, and the ancient Celts called dragonflies big needle of wings.)

Cool right?

A lot of those I never knew, so I think it's really interesting.

Do you like the idea of me giving facts/myths like this in my posts, or a little show of what the item will look like on an animal (if not obvious)?

That's it guys, so see you later! ^^
