Bugs found in the hills of Pasadena
Hi there- I found these bugs in the hills overlooking Pasadena- they look tick-like, but are they? These specimens are either dead or dormant. there was one live one that flipped its body up and down while clinging to a grass blade. I teach a science class to 4th grade kids and they want to know what kind of bugs they are- any ideas? thanks in advance,
Ed

Hi Ed,
These are the Pupae of Ladybird Beetles, or in slang, Ladybugs. Sorry we do not know the species.
