Resource Description
INSECT EMERGENCE SIGNATURE DISPLAY (Animal Signatures® Clue Display). Acorn Naturalists. Just as we learn to identify the handwriting of others, we can learn to read signatures left by wildlife. This unique 6” x 8” glass-topped display provides real examples of these animal clues from wild areas and even parks and school grounds. With this display, students learn that although you may not catch the emergence of insects as pupae hatch and chew their way out of their food source, you may find telltale signs and empty cocoons. All samples have been hand collected. Ages 9–adult. #T-22047.

Additional information: (quoted from the label on the back of the display)

"Seed pods are often colonized by insects as a way of providing food for larvae. Upon maturing, adult insects gnaw their way out of the pod, leaving the small exit holes shown. Weevils often colonize acorns in the fall, laying one egg that hatches and grows inside the acorn, feeding on the nourishing seed fat and protein. When mature, they chew their way out of the acorn—you can see their exit holes in the acorns in this display. Cocoons are another insect clue, such as the hatched silkworm cocoon in this display."
