When the adult beetle emerges, its transformation from egg to grub to pupa to adult is complete.

Once a dead mouse is found, the male and female beetles hollow out a small chamber in the soil by the mouse. Then the mother beetle lays her eggs in the chamber. Both the mother and father guard their nest.

“W E just wanted to thank you for the awesome curriculum! Our kiddo’s are loving it! We just finished the Skeletal system. We went to our local small town butcher in Utica Ohio to get a beef femur. They cut it in half for us to check out the diagram in our book. It was the coolest thing…even for mom and dad. Super appreciative of the beautiful faith filled structure! Keep it up!” —Maria, OH
