Blue death-feigning beetles (Asbolus verrucosus) are small insects found in arid regions of North America, such as deserts and scrublands. These beetles have a fascinating defense mechanism where they play dead when threatened, often flipping over and remaining motionless, resembling a lifeless creature. Additionally, they exhibit a distinct blue-gray coloration, helping them blend in with their arid surroundings. Their ability to feign death and their striking appearance make them a popular species among insect enthusiasts.


Feeds on carrots, dog food, and various fruits and vegetables.
