Re: The Return of the Cicadas - 17 years they hide...

Something interesting I learned today about cicadas. They're part of the Cicadoidea super family and there are approximately 2,500 different species. Most have a 2~5 year life cycle, but then there's the Magicicada genus of North America, which is the one known for having an extraordinarily 17 year long life cycle (their appearance happening to be this year).
