Anyone up for some trivia about some creepy crawlies? All questions are themed around "bug" stuff. (I have some spider stuff in there as well...yes I know they're not technically bugs. Anything that needs to be sprayed ferociously with Raid though I consider a bug)

When done please send a PM to Faiona titled "Bug Trivia". Everyone that sends in the correct answers will get put into a random drawing for a special avatar outfit...that revolves around this theme! Lol

Edit: Forgot to put in to please keep the answers to yourself, do not share on the forums or chat/messaging system at all on the site. Anyone found doing so will be disqualified.

This will go tomorrow until 5PM Sylestia time.

1. What is a butterflies "tongue" called?
2. This type of butterfly likes to lay eggs on the milkweed plant.
3. This flying lady is the most widespread butterfly in the world.
4. What country has the most butterfly species?
5. How many different growth stages do butterflies and moths go through?
6. What are the three suborders of spiders?
7. This huge blue spider inhabits the forest floor of Venezuela.
8. This spider has a distictive red hourglass on its abdomen.
9. This flying insect typically eats mosquitoes.
10. This group of ants likes to keep other ants for slaves.
11. Aphids are the favorite dinner of this spotted beetle.
12. This household pest predates the dinosaurs.
13. This state insect of New Mexico likes to munch on tarantulas.
14. This giant flying terror of Japan kills on average 40 people every year.

Eep, I won! Thank you so much!
Now I'm quite curious, is it a butterfly outfit? Dragonfly? Ladybug? Preying Mantis, or... a... spider...
Eh, spider is fine too, an avatar outfit can't bite me
