A six-spotted tiger beetle is bright metallic green and, like the tiger, it has sharp and very powerful jaws! Are you a Beetle? will give young children an inside look at the everyday life of this fascinating insect. They can find out where the mother beetle buries her eggs, how the egg hatches into a tiny caterpillar, how the adult beetles grab passing ants and spiders to eat from the safety of their burrow and much more.
