Sun Beetles

More from the insect house at the Cincinnati Zoo. A group of sun beetles (Pachnoda marginata) from west Africa climbing all over themselves. The signage describes them as "a fleet of taxicabs jockeying for position". Kind of does look like that. Also lists their prey "as ripe fruit and tree sap". Says they make great pets.
