IVE NEVER LAUGHED HARDER IN MY WHOLE LIFE OMG
Decided to take some photos of my beetles while I cleaned out their tank today. If you didn’t already know, they’re rainbow stag beetles! I’ve had them for a few months now, a male and a female. Even after all this time I still find them so alien to look at… Those eyes! So cool.
I know not everyone likes insects so I’ve tried to tag as appropriately as I can!

Bee Hotels for Solitary Bees
You may be wondering what bees need a hotel for, when they make their own hives. The truth is that many species of bees are solitary – the do not live in hives but instead construct their own nest. The main reason for this is because in these species every female is fertile and this would not make for comfortable communal living in a hive.
Bees you are so cute.
That is adorable.
Well now we know Leviathan will have an amazingly squeaky voice.
