Water Striders can walk on water
Did you know: water striders are typically found in slow moving freshwater streams and ponds. Water striders can walk on water thanks to the little hairs on their body that trap air bubbles between them and the water. They do not weigh too much either so they cannot sink into the water.

Water striders are amazing for their ability to stay above the water, because many other insects get trapped when they land in a pool of water.
