Its legs act like oars to move it quickly through the water. A smooth, waxy coat helps too. The diving beetle snatches its prey with its strong jaws. Bite by bite, the adult beetle devours its meal. In this exciting book, you can learn what makes diving beetles similar to and different from other insects. Close-up photographs and diagrams reveal extraordinary details about diving beetle bodies, both inside and out.
