The Beetles: Earth’s Most Diverse and Successful Animal Group

Mantis monotony? Bored of bees and butterflies? Sick of spiders? Behold: the beetles. One in every four species of animal on Earth is a beetle, yet they rarely get the same attention as many other insects and arthropods. Despite their overwhelming diversity and fascinating life cycles, most people know very little about these magnificent creatures that include the world’s heaviest, smallest, strongest, and strangest insects. In this presentation, we will explore the amazing world of coleoptera and how they affect all lives on the planet. Join ABQ BioPark Curator of Entomology, Jason Schaller, to learn more about the amazing world of beetles.
