They are big time predators in the insect world. The nymph has a detachable jaw that was the model for the monster in the movie Aliens, it eats other nymphs and small fishes. The adults are the fighter jets of the insect world. They can hover, cut, stop on a dime, and if I'm not mistaken they are the world's fastest flying insect.
