Bess Beetles (Passalidae) also known as Passalid Beetles, Peg Beetles, Betsy Beetles, Patent Leather Beetles and Horn Beetles are found in eastern Australia.⠀The family name, Passalidae is from Greek passalos, meaning a peg or gag. The name "Bess" beetle appears to be from French baiser, to kiss after the kissing sound (stridulation) made by the beetles to communicate. "Betsy" would appear to be a variant of "bess". "Peg" beetle is likely from the appearance of the beetle protruding from its excavation in a log, like a carpenter's peg. Patent leather is a shiny leather, so this name refers to the shiny body of these beetles and "Horn Beetle" presumably refers to the shiny body as well. Unusually (for beetles) Bess beetles live a subsocial lifestyle. Adults and larvae live together in family groups in galleries excavated in rotting wood by adults. Adults care for larvae, and actively feed them pre-chewed food. Both adults and larvae stridulate (kissing or rasping sound made by rubbing the legs, wings, or other parts of the body together) which is used for communication within the group.They do this when handled or threatened too.⠀@museumsvictoria@melbournemuseum#biodiversityaustralia#wandervictoria#photooftheday#catchingtheeye#melbournemuseum#whoami#animals#visitvictoria#davidpaul#museumsvictoria#wildlife#photography#wildlifephotography#science#naturalhistory#biodiversity#cuteanimals#nature#naturephotography#animalfacts#animallovers#australiananimals#beetles#coleopteras#insects#bessbeetles

@regrannfrom @joelsartore- Arctic cookie stars may look like sweet treats, but I’d advise not biting into one if you spot it laying on a rock off the coast of the northwestern United States. They’re considered quite rare and absolutely won’t taste like a sugar cookie. These sea stars reproduce both sexually and asexually. Embryos hatch into larvae and then metamorphosize into the star shape pictured here. They can grow up to 11 cm across and feed on sea sponges.These sea stars were photographed at the @alaskasealifecenter , a public aquarium focused on education, wildlife response, and scientific research...#cookiestars#arcticcookiestars#seastar#seastars#marinelife#sealife#starfish#cookies#nature#conservation#biodiversity#animalfacts#wildlife#wildlifephotography#natgeo#savetogether#photoark

It’s a new week and a new theme! Get charged up to meet critters who can generate and detect electricity. You may be - wait for it - shocked! First up, the Echidna. These adorable egg-laying mammals from Australia & New Guinea use structures called electroreceptors in their snouts for a good cause: to find food. They can pick up on the electrical impulses given off by prey like insects and worms. Research has shown they have 400-2,000 electroreceptors on their snouts.
