Today I found this click beetle inside my BiOrbAir terrarium! This is the third time I have spotted an insect inside this terrarium in less than a week! This is Ampedus balteatus, a fairly common click beetle, that can readily be found in England and Wales. I’ve yet to catch this beetle – so far he’s been too fast for me, as soon as I am able to catch him, I will release the beetle outdoors.
