    Seriously though, if you're all grossed out by this then I don't know how you're gonna handle next week's article...
    I liked the animation... especially the green wings on the newly molted cicada. I always knew what the Nincada-family was based on, but I didn't realize how much thought went into the thought process of their creation.

    Very Interesting. I always thought the Nincada line was based off of another insect. This clears up some things about my conception of the line.

    I get a swarm of Brood XIX cicada's next year!! YAY!! (or not...)

    Using Shedinja is one the most awesome experiences. Watching it slowly take your opponents team while they can't even touch it... Now thats just evil in an awesome way.

    Oh my, are you going to do that brain-eating parasitic fungus?

    On a positibe light, I obviously found it beautiful spreading its green wings like that. Also, Nincada.

    I am so glad that I won't be in TN during next summer. All of those Nincada are gonna bother the whole state.

    I saw a nymph cicada this afternoon, but I would have had no idea what it was if it wasn't for this article and that pic :O. Weird looking things :L

    I love your articles and I wish there were Cicadas in my area :( They sound so neat... (I'm a Californian)

    A professor at my university studies them and gave a lecture to my Entomology Club. Amazing little dudes...too bad they don't last that long above ground..

    I would love to see a Cicada in person, and I'm also curious to hear how annoying they really are. I kind of knew about Nincada's inpiration before this, but it's still a great read.

    Also, this image kind of creeps me out:

    This was a neat article but the second seems to be a bit misleading as applying to most cicada. Some types are on a considerably shorter cycle, even as short as just yearly.

    They also have other ways of defending themselves, ever tried to grab a cicada before?

    Well if you haven't before, don't because they will SCREAM and it will be worse than any of the rattling or buzzing they do from up in the trees.

    What annoys me even more than the cicada hatching, is the fact that it's on a towel roll for hours without anyone noticing? I would have beat the shit out of the creatin.
