It’s a sky whale with happy little barnacles.

natureconservancy: Can you spot the antlion?

nature-brains:

The antlion digs a cone-shaped hole in the soil and then buries itself beneath the point of the cone with only its fearsome mandibles showing. When an unwary creature ventures too near the edge of the pit, it slips in the loose soil and falls down the slope toward the antlion. The antlion gives the poor creature a paralyzing bite and then sucks the juices out of it. If the antlion misses with its first bite or the creature manages to stop its slide down the slope, the antlion throws soil at it and knocks it back down toward its doom. Read more.

That sounds like a truly evil creature to us!
