Meet the amazing 'Fiddle Beetle", one of the strangest looking 'ground beetles' in the world!! It's a true curiosity without explanation or purpose to its unique 'fiddle like' shape. Take a look at those antennae, so much longer than its body! And that body is paper thin, and transparent enough that you can read a book looking right through those smokey elytra (shell) covers! And a bit of trivia - years ago a Paris museum paid big bucks for a specimen when these insects were thought to be a great rarity! But in reality, they are just hard to find because they live in cracks and crevices under bark and in tree trunks.
