    These ten-lined June beetles are always coming in to the porch light, so I figured I'd collect a few. Not sure what I'm going to do with them.. Anybody need any big beetles for their habitats? They are about 2cm long.

    That's the beauty of exoskeletons, make a beetle kebab and let dry. Installing the eyes was a real bear, though.
