How many wings does a dragonfly have?


Belonging to the insect order Odonata, dragonflies have two pairs of transparent wings, six legs and an elongated body. Young dragonflies are called nymphs and they live in the water.

Dragonflies are important predators in gardens because they eat mosquitoes, flies, bees, ants, wasps and other insects. Approximately 90 percent of all dragonflies get eaten when they are still young. They breathe through gills in their rectum, which allows them to propel themselves forward quickly. Once a dragonfly becomes an adult it can fly at speeds of around 60 miles per hour.
