A little lava cricket finds a home in the lava fields | Hawai’i Volcanoes | America’s National Parks

This landscape is
often swept clean
by molten lava. It's one of the most
barren and toxic
environments on Earth. Nature has had to
adapt to living in
this land of fire. (music) A wingless lava cricket. After an eruption, she
is the first creature
to take up residence In this hostile
landscape. The ultimate pioneer. No larger than a fingernail
she survives by eating
morsels of food That blow in with
the ocean breeze. Nobody knows where she
comes from, where she goes,
or how long she lives. In many ways,
she's a mystery. At some point known only
to her, she'll leave.
