  • Abstract:

    The large size of most vertebrates compared to that of insects makes it difficult for predatory insects to utilise them as prey and, consequently, very few insects are capable of doing so. The few records of such interactions are usually incidental occurrences limited to young nestling birds or small lizards on land, or small fish and tadpoles in aquatic habitats.
