So Easy to See the Awesomeness



Kick Back and Watch Flesh Eating Beetles Eat Some Birds to the Bone

Ever wonder how you get a bird skeleton to look so nice and white? BEETLES.

"Watch a time-lapse video showing the [ Natural History Museum's ] smallest workers, flesh-eating beetles, preparing the skeletons of a great green macaw, tawny owl and mountain peacock-pheasant"

Chemical baths can actually ruin the bones, so flesh eating beetles are used to do the job of eating away at the delicious hunks of meat rendering the skeleton clean and ready to be showcased to the public. Talk about the easiest job ever. Pay me to eat? SIGN ME UP.
