Life cycle: A dragonfly larva hatches from an egg which is laid in water or in plants near water or even underwater. This aquatic (living in the water) larva (called a nymph) grows tremendously. It molts (loses its old skin) many times. When fully-grown, it emerges from the water, using the claws on its feet to crawl onto a plant. The dragonfly flies away over land. It only returns to the water to reproduce and continue this cycle. The life span ranges from about 6 months to over 7 years (most of it is spent in the nymph stage).

it also varies from species to species.

oh, and as someone who has done way to much in cognitive psychology, "memory span" is one of those terms that lay people use but has no clinical or scientific validity, like "insanity". are they talking about working memory or long term? also, memory for what? and how was the experiment conducted? i find that claim suspect without seeing the article. oh, and dare i mention individual variation :)

anyway, enjoy
