With more than 3,000 known species around the globe — and who knows how many yet to be discovered — beetles are the most numerous life forms on earth. Nearly one in every three animal species is a beetle.

Equal parts aviator, woodworker, sewage disposal, strongman and athlete, the humble beetle is among the greatest survivors the world has ever known. With their hard body armor and endless adaptability to climate and food source, beetles have outlived the dinosaurs and are poised to conquer the 21st century. We tell The Whole Story on these amazing arthropods.
