Interesting beetle information

Beetles are all over the planet and live everywhere apart from the oceans and North and South Poles. There are differing opinions on just how many different kinds of beetles there are but it is often said that 1 in every 4 animals on earth is a beetle.

Humans eat a lot of beetles and their larvae. Africa, Asia, and the Amazon are some of the main areas where the beetle is part of people’s diet.

Some beetles are huge! The Goliath beetle can grow to a length of up to 11 centimeters and can weigh as much as 100 grams.

They don’t live very long. Most beetles complete their life cycle in just around one year.
