One of the field trips we took with the kids recently was described to us as "about bugs."
"Okay" I thought, "this is going to be boring."
It was anything but boring. And one of the treasures the kids, along with the teachers were given to take home as a pet was a caterpillar. However, this caterpillar, if he can be called that, will not transform into a beautiful butterfly. Oh, no! Not this guy. This guy will certainly make a cocoon, but his metamorphosis will be into entirely different; a Japanese rhinoceros beetle. Well, at least I think it's that beetle. No one knows for sure. In Korean it's called the "stag beetle" but we can't seem to find a proper translation. Basically this beetle will be HUGE; 35-90 mm, around the length of a man's index finger.
