Quote from: Hercules beetle on November 03, 2014, 04:50:44 AMI am so glad you posted this. Isn't that big lobster thing a little scary?
Quote from: bmathison1972 on November 04, 2014, 02:35:58 PM1) Sean and Hercules Beetle: yes the big one is by AAA2) Hercules Beetle, if by 'tiger centipede' you mean the big one in the back, it's by Safari LTD as part of their retired Smithsonian Collection. I am at work and don't have it handy but it's about a foot. it's pretty big3) Andre, the dragonfly life cycle is by Tedco Toys. Most of their life cycles are nice. The only disappointing one is their butterfly LC, which has the larva of a papilionid but the adult looks like a monarch I will try to take and post the beetles before the end of the week. There will be about 7 images to capture all the coleopterans

Where did you get the ladybug on the flower?Thank you!The ladybug on the flower was part of a set by Furuta (you can see the whole set here: http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~CH2M-NITU/sciencee.htm). The ladybug and flower were sold as 'accessories' for the butterfly, but I glued the ladybug to the flower so it's always part of it.
