My friend Andrew found a dead beetle under his bed recently.
If you know him, you can look up the picture on Twitter. The poor thing is lying on its side, just . . . dead.
There are so many different types of beetles in the world. In Asia, beetles are sometimes used for insect fighting - much like other types of animal fighting it is kind of gross. One of the most popular battlers, though, is the Rhinoceros Beetle. They can get pretty big - up to six inches - among the largest beetles in the world. They use the horn on top of their head to chase off potential rivals. Having recently learned this fact, I am going to start bringing a Rhinoceros Beetle with me when I go out on Saturday nights!
