Trilobite beetle of Laos

Mad Maxine sent me a great bug link – QuaoArlo has a great collection of videos he’s taken – he’s quite the world traveler and really knows his bugs. My favorite is the Trilobite beetle from Laos – it’s fantastic! It moves in a really unusual way; its legs are all towards the front end, and it kind of pushes off with its butt. I love the music, too.
