    I wonder how long huge beetles like that live. I know I could look on Wiki, but I feel lazy.

    I love natural history museums. Thanks for sharing those pictures. Is Lucy a traveling exhibit? I think it was Lucy that I saw up here in Kansas: either in Wichita or Kansas City. I especially like the assassin bugs.

    Those huge beetles freak me out. If I ever saw a live one I would shriek like a 12 year old girl and run like all hell was chasing me. I can handle spiders, and even pick up the non/lesser poisonous ones, but for some reason non-harmful beetles freak me out. ooh and cockroaches...

    Lucy is on loan from the national museum of Ethiopia. She's supposed to be here until April I think, then go on to somewhere else that may or may not have already been negotiated.

    Some beetles can live for about a decadeish. The ones that have wood or soil eating larvae at least. What they eat is so nutrient poor, it can take them upwards of 7 years of eating their almost nutrientless food source to be able to get anough energy to pupate into an adult. They don't stay in adult form for that long though.

    The goliath beetle can weigh up to 1/4th lb
