Beetle Mania

8 Feb 2017

Did you know the rhinoceros beetle can lift over 800 times its own body weight? That the bombardier beetle can shoot acid out of its own bottom? And that some people actually EAT bugs – which might just help save the planet?

Find out about these awesome beetles and more in a bug-tastic event with M.G. Leonard, author of the bestselling Beetle Boy and its sequel Beetle Queen. This promises to be an hour packed full with fun, facts and – of course – beetles!
