On this trip, we had hiked nearly to the end of the Nature Trail across the street from our school. Our first few scoops of mud resulted in around finding 10 caddisflies. All caddisflies were very active, crawling around our ice cube trays (for observation) and sticking their bodies out of their casings.
Caddisfly larvas are worm-like with 6 legs near its head. The body is soft and segmented and have hair-like gills. These organisms were worm-like, had 6 legs, a soft and segmented body, and hairlike gills.
Some caddisfly species make cases out of materials like sand, sticks, leaves, or pebbles. These organisms had casings made of sticks.
