Dune Tiger Beetle
The Dune Atiger Beetle is a predatory beetle species with large eyes and jaws. It lives on open sandy soils created due to military training activities. The beetle’s larvae live in vertical burrows tunneled into these open sandy soils.
Shallow standing water bodies have been created as a result of military training activities. They warm up easily and are ideal habitats for Yellow-bellied Toads.
Dragonfly and damselfly
Various dragonfly and damselfly species also quickly establish their habitat in the shallow standing water bodies and puddles created from military training activities. The Four-spotted Chaser is a characteristic of plant-rich ponds.
