That Beetle

Well, it seems that I was ever so clever by writing how the beetle I found at my desk this morning looked not unlike a piece of jewelry, as what I had discovered (and fled in search of clean undies) was a "Jewel Beetle".

Here is a photo I found online taken with a hand not trembling in fear.

I guess it depends on the size of your computer monitor, et cetera... but no... I think that the picture on the right is a little larger than life. (However, the one that I took down below is quite close to the actual size on my computer screen.)

I am writting a report on Jewel Bettles and I cant find any information. It lead me to you, and you dont know how it eats.
