Firefly

You might not know it, but fireflies are a type of beetle that lights up the night sky with ease. Special chemicals in their abdomen mix with oxygen to produce their own blinking nightlights to attract mates.

Tiger Beetle

These speedy beetles can zip around with the same speed as a housefly. Their Samurai sword-like jaws and streamlined wings help them hunt other insects. Pretty fitting, given their name.

Beetle Mania!

They’re everywhere! Under logs, in the grass, zipping by your face, skipping across the pond. No matter where you go, you can’t get away from them.
