Found this bug and wanted to know what kind it is.
These adorable beetles are harmless, and make very cute "kissing" sounds if they are frightened. They can even be kept in a cool moist terrarium with lots of clean garden soil (no chemicals!) and fed veggies. They'd love a nice rotting chunk of wood to munch on too. (I've kept Bess Beetles in my former classroom before.)
Oh it's my favorite beetle! A Bess Bug" !
