The Ant Lion and/or Antlion is neither an ant nor a lion, albeit this interesting insect gets its name because its larva is so freakin' fierce (like a lion attack) of an enemy towards other insects, and especially towards ants. The larva, depicted below, has a thick, fleshy body. Its large jaws are jointed like the arms of a pincer, and they have spines and stiff hairs on the sides.

The adult Ant Lion has two pairs of wings, as shown below:
