Stag Beetle

<Stag Beetle>

I opened the container lid tonight.

The stag beetle larva became a pupa!

“Mom! The stag beetle larva became a pupa!” “What?!”

It was so astonishing! It blew my mind away!

We got a magnifying glass and continued to observe. But he kept secreting some kind of water from his butthole. (Yuck) But the other beetle hadn’t become a pupa yet.

And then the pupa wiggled. “How can a pupa move?”

It was so mysterious.
