The other day when I went to TSUTAYA to rent DVDs,
my son found a beetle on the street. He grabbed it
and got into a car with it. I thought he would let it go
when we got home, but he started to say that he wanted
to keep it at home.
A beetle!? I ah personally don't like beetles because
they look like cockroaches. However, my husband used
to keep it a few years ago when a beetle flew to our
apartment. Luckily, a insect cage, which is
perfectly covered fallen leaves and soil, was still in his room.
Everything is ready. My son is satisfied. PERFECT, but
he is still 4 years old and so honest. He said, " I am happy.
I am now looking forward to seeing the beetle laying an
Laying an egg!? It would never happen in this cage.
I didn't care that much. It is the life.
He is young. He will learn it sooner or later, but he
has a nice buddy. Here comes a gentle grandpa.
He nicely said to his grandson, "I saw beetles sold
near our house. Why don't you get some more!?"
Ten minutes later just after the conversation,
they brought 4 beetles, which are flawlessly combined
with 2 male and 2 female ones.
So far 5 beetles live together happily, though they are
so active at night.
