Cotinis mutabilis


The Cotinis mutabilis is a green beetle in the family Scarabaeidae.

AppearanceEdit

The Fruit Beetle has a metallic colour and a yellow U on its rear. The legs have hook-like claws to grab things. They do not use their frontal wings when flying. Their stregnth is weak- it can be crushed easily.

HabitatEdit

At larval stage, Fruit beetles are very active, stretching themselves and rolling around. When asleep, they form a tight C-shape. At adult stage, these beetles chew through soft fruit like figs and peaches- they sometimes eat flowers. Their unique chirping noise sounds like a bee's wing whisper.
