Necrophila americana

Recommended Posts

Some carrion beetles and their young eating a dead frog. My girlfriend and I came across them hiking the Appalachian, and set up alongside them for a while to watch them feed. They were voracious and quite aware of our presence; we were "chased off" many times by a very persistent adult which, after we backed off, assaulted a slug that was getting a little too close for comfort. The whole scene was incredible and very comical, as I found them to be rather expressive. ^_^

They're on my list amigo...i will keep you posted. Glad I'm not the only one thinking bout living with carrion! :lol:


If you succeed in breeding them, please share some pics of their life cycle on this forum. It would make a great thread :)
