Description

Beetles are ravishingly beautiful and engagingly odd, often at the same time. A Box of Beetles offers you 100 examples of the most striking species in a very photogenic family, from the glittering metallic rose beetles that were worn by the Etruscans as jewellery, to the vast (and aptly named) Titanic beetle, which is almost 8inches long, and strong enough to snap a pencil between its jaws. Flip through the pack, marvelling at its inhabitants, then choose the most awesome to send or display.
