All rights reserved. Because costs of transport of terrestrial migrants are high, and risks of predation severe, there are few species of small animals that migrate by walking or running, and all animals making terrestrial migrations of more than a few kilometers are relatively large mammals, such as wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus), caribou (Rangifer tarandus), and bison (Bos bison). In insects, migration occurs fairly frequently among species in the orders Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) and Diptera (flies) and occasionally in Orthoptera (grasshoppers and locusts), Colleoptera (beetles), and Odonata (dragonflies).

Not all animals use the same fuel and some may even use different substrates during different stages of a prolonged trip, particularly if feeding is not possible. Glycogen and trehalose, a disaccharide that hydrolyzes to glucose, may be used in metabolic pathways of some migrant Diptera (flies) and Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths). Other species typically store glycogen, which is transformed to glucose (a simple sugar) for use in the Krebs cycle. In birds, glucose and glycogen are used for muscular activity, but accumulation of lipid for migration has been observed widely; it has been demonstrated in at least 40 families of birds.
