Easter Object of the Week – 28/03/13

This Sunday is Easter Sunday – Happy Easter to you all!

See if you know what this Easter themed object is. If it were made of chocolate it would be the largest easter egg in the world!

 

Did you know what last week’s object of the week was?

Rhinoceros beetle

The rather fabulous horns of this male rhinoceros beetle may look threatening, but you only need to be worried if you are another male rhinoceros beetle.

Rhinoceros beetles are in the Scarab beetle subfamily Dynastinae. Only the males have horns which they use to compete for females.

Rhinoceros beetles were featured in the BBC nature news pages last week. Click here to read the story.
