Caddis Fly Larva

Caddisfly larvae are the youthful stage of the Caddisfly, an insect. The larvae are important food for fish. They use their own glue to make cases out of sand grains or pieces of plants. It goes along with them as they hunt for food. They duck inside for protection. When a larva gets too large for its skin and case, it molts (sheds). Then it builds another, larger, case to grow into. This molting caddisfly larva will leave this case and build a larger one. There are 800 different species of North American caddisflies!
