Bess Beetle

This lovely male beetle was found on some rotted logs. When I bent down to photograph him he made noises at me. I wasn't sure what the sound was at first because it was so faint. I listened and it sort of sounded like several baby birds with their mouths open making that squealing noise begging for food.

Also, you can conduct "tractor pull" experiments with Bess Beetles
