The Rosalia beetle is a unique beetle with very long antennas. When handled or threatened, the beetle makes an audible noise similar to that of a squeaky running shoe, or a hissing sound much like air being let out of a bike tire.
Making the beetle is a precise and delicate task. The body is made of black cardboard. The wings are made of unique metallic paper to mimic a shimmering effect.
You can mount this fascinating Rosalia Beetle on your wall or you could let it shine on your desk, shelf or table.
It takes about 15 minutes to assemble the Rosalia Beetle.
