What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Bug Love Photo!
Hello!
I just have to say that I LOVE your site. I noticed you put up a “bug love” section… I have a photo to contribute. This is a photo I took of two mating beetles at the Seattle Zoo. I actually took a photo of the entire beetle exhibit, but didn’t notice THESE two going at it until after I got home and took a closer look at the photos. So I cropped the large photo down to include just the two lovers for your bug love page. However, I didn’t write down the name of the beetles from the exhibit.. and forgot what species they were.
sincerely,
brenda

Hi Brenda,
What a nice image to begin the first day of spring. We are relatively certain one of our readers will be able to provide a name for your amorous exotic Scarab Beetles.

    It belongs to the African genus Mecynorrhina, probably M. torquata ugadensis.
