- Hi John! Wow, that is really exciting! I am so happy that one of them has come out, do you know if it is a male or a female? Don't be too worried about it being under the soil, they will often bury themselves to escape danger. They do love banana, but I believe they will eat other soft fruit as well, if you want to change it around a bit sometimes to give some variety you can. Also, they will happily eat rotting fruit, so you don't have to worry about giving him (or her) new banana every day. It was lovely to meet you and your beetle larvae, please keep us updated! I'm glad you enjoyed Scientist for a Day - I did as well! I'll hopefully see you studying entomology at university in a few years :) Kind Regards, Erinn Fagan-Jeffries
Mr Blobby, a fish specimen that we saw on the behind-the-scenes tour in Marine Worlds, was in the Adelaide newspaper on Sunday!
