It’s time for Beetle Mania, Thanksgiving Point’s biannual beetle celebration that showcases some of the most fascinating beetles from around the world. Forget the musical icons; these beetles rock their own unique styles and talents, from climbing trees to crawling through dirt and even emitting unique scents!

Meet the Beetle Stars:

1. Small Desert Stink Beetles:

Known for their ability to emit a pungent odor as a defense mechanism, Small Desert Stink Beetles are masters of protection and will captivate your curiosity with their resilience. These all-black beetles can be found across the western US, even here in Utah.

2. Long-armed Scarab Beetle:

Look out for the Long-armed Scarab Beetle, famous for its elongated limbs. These powerful legs are adapted to their environment, making them incredible climbers and diggers.

3. Golden Stag Beetle:

The Golden Stag Beetle is truly a sight to behold with its striking golden exoskeleton and formidable mandibles. These beetles use their impressive jaws to spar with rivals and attract mates.

4. Four Spotted Flower Beetle:

The Four Spotted Flower Beetle is a vibrant addition to our Beetle Mania lineup. With its colorful markings and affinity for flowers, this beetle not only adds beauty to its surroundings but also plays a crucial role in pollination.
