Marvin the Rhinoceros Beetle - July 28th, 2003

(11 photos)

Minori and I found this super-cute rhinoceros beetle on the way home one night, so I took him home and made him my pet-for-a-day. His name is Marvin. Check out these pictures!

Looking good

A head-on shot. Here you can see his "mouth-parts", which are teeny and kind of feathery ... rhinoceros beetles eat decompoosing plant matter, so they don't have teeth. They can't bite you.

Kind of out of focus, but another shot of his mouth close-up
