    • The cicada holds branches firmly before the cicadas get out.
      Its shell so relatively hard, do not fall for a while.

    • Thank you for your comment.
      For several hours, it is vulnerable at all.
      Molting at the end of the cicada is done at night usually.
      It takes a few hours until set wings extended.
      It is a soft body with white color first.
      The coloring soon, the body of the cicada will gradually harden it.
      Meanwhile, the cicada has been clinging to this shell much.

      • Very interesting. Must be a tough time in a cicada’s life, and they have to go through it alone. Otherwise, you’d see groups of the shells in one spot, where they all kept each other company.

      • This cicada will the underground life for seven years.
        They live in a community between the tree’s roots.
        And they will on the ground life about the 10 days.
        They live in a community between trees.
        There are “alone” between the process.
        Thank you.
