CICADA SHELL

When young cicada nymphs hatch from their eggs, they dig themselves into the ground to suck the liquids of plant roots. They spend several early life stages in these underground burrows before surfacing as adults. They then shed this nymph stage shell before flying off to mate and start the cycle over again.
