Can ground beetles fly??

Postby Bugz » Fri Jan 19, 2007 3:29 pm

The answer is YES

I dont know much about groud beetles, I had been opining all of them can just creep until this green little buddy flew in to my house one day. And he flew speedily... He gas attacked me when I caught him, it smell like ****.

His name is Chleanius micans.

Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned.
Only after the last fish has been caught.
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
