Caption: Beetle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a beetle (Sinodendron cylindricum). It has a prominent horn on its head. Such features are generally used to attract a mate. These beetles are found in moist wooded areas, and live on plant matter, dung and rotting wood. They belongs to the same family (Lucanidae) as the well-known stag beetles. The beetles sense smells with their antennae (yellow, lower right and lower left), while the large compound eyes (one at lower left, red) is the primary organ of sight. There are more than 350,000 known species of beetle, more than any other animal order on Earth. Magnification: x8 at 5x7cm size. x20 at 5x7".
