Amazing Cicada life cycle - Sir David Attenborough's Life in the Underground

Summer's finally here when you hear cicadas!

We've been looking at the fascinating life cycle of the cicada. Here's a terrific clip from Sir David Attenborough- he talks about a 17 year life cycle of a North American Cicada. In NZ, we dont know exactly but that life cycle is more like 3-5 years.
