Not the Beatles, the Beetles

Beetles make up about 40% of known insects, with approximately 400,000 species.  Some scientists estimate that the known species may be as small as 5% of all actual existing species.  New ones are being discovered all the time!  Beetles are so diverse that there are kinds that eat carrion, fungus, plants, flowers, fruits, etc.  You can find them all over the world in just about every habitat.
