Creature Feature II: antlions and helmeted basilisks

Here’s installment number two of the Creature Feature column for Hindu BLinkLife of the Sedentary. I’m finding that an easy way to pick creatures to write about is to choose favourite organisms. This month’s piece features my own favourite organism, the antlion larva (I think it might be time to promise to never write about antlions again), as well as one of my friend and colleague Dan Rice’s favourites, the helmeted basilisk.
