South African Beetle

Observed: 22nd December 2012 By: Charlie Hearnshaw
South African Beetle

This beetle was under a rock by the side of the road in South Africa, in a rural area.
Even though the weather was warm, it moved very slowly.
If you look closely you can see a few strands of spiders web attached, although there is no suggestion that the beetle was caught in a web.
The beetle was about 4 / 4.5 cm long
