Cicadas are members of the order Hemiptera, suborder Auchenorrhyncha, family Cicadidae and there are about 2500 species in the world. Some cicada species are present every year (annual cicadas) and some only come out every thirteen or seventeen years (periododical cicadas). They can be as beautiful as they are loud, like this specimen from South America. Colorful and very noisy, species in the genus Salvazana are also large (over 3 inches from wing-tip to wing-tip).

Cicadas choose their own time to be born. They nestle themselves in the cool earth, almost as if in hibernation, feeding on the roots of trees until their internal body clocks sound an alarm, resurrecting them the earth anywhere from 1-17 years later.
