The time a beetle spends in each stage of its life is different for each kind of beetle. Many beetles go from egg to adult in just a few weeks while some take several years. How long will your beetle spend in each stage of its life?
Some beetles will eat one kind of food as a larva and something else as an adult. Others beetles always eat the same food. In some cases, the beetle larva will eat one part of a plant while the adult eats a different part of the same plant! What will your beetle eat?
