We found this Rhino Beetle the other day and as we were examining him we noticed several Whip Scorpions attached to the back of his abdomen. I remember in EO Wilsons book “The Diversity of Life” a description of another Whip Scorpion parasite on another beetle. Interesting, I wonder if this species is described.
– Also see other smaller egg type things near the Whip Scorpion. I don’t know if these are eggs or another parasite.This entry was posted in Natural History and tagged Insects on .
