Lady Bug Anatomy And How It Helps Students

     A ladybug is a teeny tiny insect of barely 0.25 inch long. Though when studying about its anatomy, the entire body structure consists of 6 different parts, where each has some specific purpose to render. Starting, directly with a brief explanation to all the 6 parts these are the key bullet points of each one of them:
1. Elytra:
This is the most evident top hard shell of the ladybug that we generally first at the first sight. Colorful in appearance they can be of any shade and pattern like red, blue, green, black, yellow etc. The elytra provides protection to the wings of the insect.
2. Wings
These are highly thin, transparent wings located next to the elytra. Very fragile and easily jeopardized section of the entire anatomy.
3. Pronotum
As we have skull to protect the human mind, similarly we have pronotum to protect the ladybug's little head. When foreseen some danger the ladybug is capable of retreating its head under this to protect it from any kind of injury. The various white spots seen on the surface represent the eyes that provide for all the vision it has.
4. Antenna
The lady bug makes use of these small linear, straight pointed thingies on their head that act as the sensor to locate for food by following their aroma. They even taste it through them.
5. Legs
Ladybugs have jointed legs in six, comprising of organs that can smell on their own.
6. Thorax and Abdomen
This is the body section that attached the legs and the wings and contains all the primary organs needed for most crucial functions such as reproductive system, digestive system etc.
All in all, each part of the body, no matter how compact its size is has an important role to play in the overall functioning of the insect's body.
