See my beetles in action!

On Youtube and streaming on Twitch.TV

The dermestid beetles (also called carrion beetles) consume flesh and soft tissues like cartilage. This is the first step in the bone cleaning process before degreasing and whitening.

Beetles go through a process of metamorphosis very similar to a butterfly. When they first hatch from an egg, the larvae look sort of like a caterpillar. As they grow they will shed their exoskeletons (the white ones have recently shed their skin) and form a new one. Eventually the larvae crawl underground and build a cocoon where they transform into an adult beetle. When they're ready, they hatch out and crawl to the surface.

Amazing quality & just as advertised! I'm very impressed & intrigued by the seller's cleansing and preserving process for their products. I will definetly buy from them again in the future! Thank you!

This is a beautiful skull! It's clean and complete, and the resin coating makes the bone feel stronger than most other skulls. I'm sure that this will be a centerpiece in my collection for many years to come!

Ebay Customer

I enjoy getting items from this seller. They are always in great condition and as shown in the photographs. Shipment and delivery is very fast. I haven’t used these yet but I am excited to create something with them.
