Being the loudest of all insects, the Cicada finds mates with dulcet tones - similar to that of a chainsaw.

I found two skins as you call it of this cicada and found it quite interesting to actually find out what this insect is or was.  I would like to actually see what came out of this skin, not sure if it would be the same as.
