A spawn only a mother could love.

And even the mother probably turns her eyes away on a frequent basis....

Ugly but "inspirational"------------but look what they inspire.

Antlion folklore examples from around the world

United States
U.S. antlion folklore probably dates back to the earliest days of colonization. The most common type of U.S. antlion folklore takes the form of a charm about the colloquial "doodlebug." Perhaps the most well-known example of a doodlebug charm was published in 1876, when writer Mark Twain included one in his novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: "Doodle-bug, doodle-bug, tell me what I want to know!"
Here are several other examples of doodlebug charms collected in the southern United States during the early 20th century (Hand 1964, 412-414):
1
Doodle, doodle, come and get some bread and butter;
Doodle, doodle, come and get a barrel of sugar.
2
Doodlebug, doodlebug, come up and get a grain of corn.
Your house is burning up.
3
Doodlebug, doodlebug,
Come out of your hole;
Your house is on fire,
And your children will burn.
4
Doodlebug, doodlebug, come out of your house;
It's burning up with your wife and all your children,
Except Mary—she's under the dishpan.
5
Doodlebug, doodlebug,
Come out of your hole;
If you don't,
I'll beat you black as a mole.
6
Doodle, doodle, doodle,
Your mother and grand-daddy are dead.

As kids we would take a blade of grass and spit on the end of it and run it down their hole and try and drag them out...they will latch onto the grass once you stick it in thier hole...I personally never got one out...
