    Those things are so creepy.
    There all brown and gross...
    And they make the most hilariously disturbing noises then they fly.

    They're not like spiders or caterpillars, which are just the most beautiful insects.

    ~Bugs.~

    Edit:

    Just did a search.
    Turns out it's called the Brown Beetle.
    Who knew.
    :/

    My keyblade crushed it all the same.

    Hahaha this is an awesome topic. I hate all insects that flutter including, butterflies, beatles, crickets, and moths. Other bugs are cool as long as they don't flutter. God dammit I hate that.

    It's a scarab beetle. Scarabs (but not this species) were held sacred in ancient Egypt.

    Spiders arent insects, btw.

    What is "a level 3 Waterbug"?

    You think that is something. I watched an episode of "Untold stories of the ER," and this doctor removed a june bug that got caught in a woman's ear (somehow?!?!). Freakin' cringe worthy stuff!!!!!!

    Scarabs are so cool looking, it's like a natural robotic bug with black armour plates and motion detectors (i.e. anthena). At least that was I thought when I was a kid, hehe.

    When I was a kid I like to squash those poor creatures. I thought how come they don't have bones or something.

    Now I save the scarabs in my backyard because them seem to hike the stairs and die so I grab those little buggers (see what I did there?) and put them in the soft loamy soil whenever I see them.

    Now because I'm the only one in the family who goes catching oranges I grew a passionate hate to ants, so small, so plenty, so ... hard to kill with blunt damage. They stung me a lot..

    Guys, the photo is not that of a scarab beetle (family Scarabaeidae), but a brown beetle (family Cerambycidae). It's easy to confuse the two.

    A level 3 brown beetle is nothing compared to a level 3 Titanus giganteus or even a level 2 Dynastes hercules.

    I love the little lizard things that live in FL. They eat roaches. I used to watch them do it and smile as I sipped my whisky.

    Titanus giganteus just big, but not cool looking, just bland and really big.

    Dynastes hercules, very cool looking. The fact that it's pretty big just adds to the 'coolness factor.'

    No keyblade was involved in either confrontation. They're far too blunt, doing little damage. I cast Firaga, nothing; Thundaga and Bio, nothing. I hadn't taken into account that their shells were strong enough to negate most magicka. Luckily, I had enough MP to summon Odin from Valhalla, who made short work of both beetles.

    That's not a Cerambycid ... icon_rolleyes.gif ... How do you think it is?

    Identifying characteristics for the family Cerambycidae include:
    Long filiform antennae, ranging from one-half to over two times the length of the body.
    Body usually elongate and cylindrical; 2- to 60-mm in length.
    Eyes generally notched with antenna arising within the notch.
    Tarsi apparently 4-4-4, really 5-5-5 with the 4th segment small and inconspicuous.

    Identifying characteristics for the family Scarabaeidae include:
    Robust beetles varying greatly in shape; size ranging from 2 to 62 mm.
    Distinctive lamellate antennae; club generally 3 to 4 segments (max. 7) and capable of being closed tightly.
    Tarsi 5-5-5.

    The two dont look anything alike. ... icon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gif
