Robber Fly - Also Called Assassin Flies

in The macrophotography10 months ago

This is a type of insect called robber fly, or commonly known as fly killer, this fly is larger than the usual fly. This fly is hairy, you can see it in the picture the front of his face is filled with hair, he can also be called a fly that flies very fast. Some of them are even capable of catching big catches like grasshoppers, His strong legs allow him to do this and his legs also look prickly, also has three simple eyes called ocelli, The eye is between the two compound eyes that are clearly visible. This fly preys on by stabbing its prey using its strong and short trunk. After the stabbing process, he injects his saliva which contains neurotoxic enzymes. The substance very quickly paralyzes the victim, then after that he sucks the liquid from the animal it preys on. For more information on this robber fly you can see it here.
