Comments

nice drawing and pictures.

The diving beetle you found will likely eat some of the spotted salamanders once they hatch.

Thank you very much. We are so thankful that you got back to us quickly. We really hope that the diving beetle dose not eat the eggs. Do you no if it is a really big water bug or a predacious diving beetle??

Thank You,
Ava, Calob,and lizzy:)

It looks like a predacious diving beetle to me.
