Asbolus laevis and Asbolus papillosus are smooth death feigning beetles, also known as Pop And Lock Beetles after the popular dance. Like their sister species the blue death feigning beetle, these put on a great show of being dead when disturbed and in all honesty, an even better show! When on their backs their legs often twitch back and forth like dying things used to do in Warner Bros. Cartoons. They have golden tufts of hair out near their toes that allows them to move better through the fine sand dunes they occur in.
These can live with all the other desert beetles available on this website. Really one of the best desert beetles we get in and rarely available!
