Hercules Beetle

Imagine a bug as big as your hand. That’s the Hercules beetle. This enormous insect lives in Central and South America. It can carry loads 100 times heavier than its own weight. That would be like your 70-pound classmate lifting a 7,000-pound truck!

Giraffe Weevil

The Madagascar giraffe weevil doesn’t really mean to look down on other beetles. But with its long head, it can’t help it. If they’re in danger, these heady insects turn on their backs and play dead, sometimes for up to an hour.

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.
