Bloody Nosed Beetle Larva

I have been off the blogging scene for a while as we have moved house-to another beautiful place where we are surrounded by countryside, very English countryside.

I found this little fellow early one morning and he made me very excited as I have been looking for one of these for a few years now! In case you missed in the title of the blog…..he’s a Bloody Nosed Beetle larva!

I love his shape, colour, curliness and feet!


So I have taken lots of photos!


The Bloody Nosed Beetle gets its name because when frightened it produces a bright red liquid from its mouth!


Naturally this bright red liquid is foul tasting thus putting off predators!


If you follow the link at the end of this blog you will see what wonderful feet the adult Bloody Nosed Beetle has……well I think so!


If you wanted to know any more about this little fellow, then follow this link……

That’s All!

See Ya xx
