Beetles are sturdy, armored insects that come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

Most beetles have two pairs of wings:

  • The outer pair of wings is typically hard and thickened to form a shell-like covering for the beetle’s abdomen.
  • The inner pair of wings is what they actually use to fly.

1/4 of all animal species are beetles!

There are approximately 400,000 species of beetles – more than any other order of insects. In fact, beetles constitute almost 25% of all known animal species.

Habitat & Diet

Not only are there numerous species of beetles, they are found in every major habitat except oceans and polar regions.

Beetles have a wide range of diets:

  • Some feed on animal and plant debris,
  • others on flesh,
  • and others on fungi or waste.

Beetles themselves are an important food source for many different types of animals, including other insects, fish, reptiles and birds.
