Bible Animals: Dragon Fly Dragon Fly in the ancient World.
Ancient Dragon Fly. THE Dragon Fly belongs to the same family which has produced the insect known in this country as the " devil's needle." It is beautiful in appearance, graceful, and swift in motion, but cruel and voracious in its habits. It lies in wait for its insect prey, and at the proper moment pounces upon it and devours it, first pulling off its wings to prevent its escape. It will even eat its own species. - Animals, Birds, Insects, And Reptiles Of The Bible
