These beetle lucite paperweights are a perfect way to explore these fascinating specimens from every angle without worrying about harming the specimen. The family Scarabaeidae as currently defined consists of over 30,000 species of beetles worldwide. The species in this large family are often called scarabs or scarab beetles. Scarab beetles combined comprise about 10 percent of all known beetles. Scarabs are stout-bodied beetles, measuring between 1.5 and 160 mm. They have distinctive, clubbed antennae composed of plates called lamellae that can be compressed into a ball or fanned out like leaves to sense odours. The front legs of many species are broad and adapted for digging.
