Cicada

Only the males of my species “sing” or make a noise that attracts females.

As an adult I usually don’t eat, but am a tasty treat for songbirds.

I can remain in the ground as a nymph for as many as 17 years.

People often mistakenly call me a locust.

Do you know who I am?

Tiger Salamander

I am the world's-largest land-dwelling salamander.

I live in prairie ponds, marshes, lakes, and woodland ponds.

I am somewhat of a chameleon as my colors and patterns can change throughout my lifecycle.

When I am young, I am definitely spotted, but my spots turn to bars (like a tiger) or irregular blotches.

I am the Illinois state amphibian.

Painted Turtle

I can live 20-30 years and grow to be the size of dinner plates.

I don’t have external ears but use my shell (carapace) to conduct low-frequency vibrations to the middle ear.

I can dive up to 2 meters and stay under as long as an hour.

I may be “painted”, but I’m not artwork.

I am the Illinois state reptile.
