    Smell a bit odd?

    Is it just me or can beetles release a defensive smell like some phasmids? Ive never heard of it untill mine reaks when handled

    Eudicella smithi bertherandi

    These were and are my first beetles. I got 3 cacoons in a trade for some phasmids, always wanted to try beetles and kept pushing for some yet always forgot 2/3 Hatched and both were male so breedings knackered Ive had them a fair while now and the one with the smaller horns who hatched last died the other day, heres an old photo of the remaining one

    The Giant predaceous water beetle

    Nice photo, seem similar to the great diving beetles we have here, or they are the great diving beetles if your in England I remember when i was a little kid going to a cathedral school trip once finding massive larvae of them once, all i had was a full pop bottle i soon swigged down in way for the beetles sadly though was caught by the teacher back at school who forced me to put them in the school pond againt mine, for some reason there was whole lot less wild life in that pond next year

    Hello everyone, may recognise me from other forums, thought its good to have a forum for each invert and i want to get really into beetles so this fits perfectly, only have 1 species at the mo, cant remember the name will try and get it later on, only a small fruit beetle, i would love to someday get into beetles as much as i do phasmids and stick insects
