Beetles at Activity Village

Did you know?

Beetles come in many shapes and sizes, and there are over 300,000 different species living on our planet. They've been living on earth for a long time too - over 300,000 years! They come in many colours and patterns, from reds and purples to bright yellows and oranges, and with spots and stripes - so that gives you lots of ideas for our beetle colouring page!

Fun Fact: The featherwing beetle is the smallest beetle, and it can only be seen with a microscope!
