Devil’s Coach Horse Beetle

Time: 2.30pm

Place: Cannock Chase

Weather: Cloudy with breaks of sunshine

The Devil’s Coach Horse Beetle is found in the UK between April and October. We found this little guy in the heathland at Cannock Chase. It will adopt a defensive pose where it raises its tail and opens its jaws and can be seen as quite aggressive. This one calmed down after a few seconds of me handling him, and luckily no injuries occurred! 2017-04-07_12.17.13
