I know you all love beetles. But you probably don't love beetles (and other insects) as much as they do in Japan! Or maybe you do, but you just don't know it yet. Check out this fascinating documentary to find out!

I didn't,.. and fast-forwarded a lot.

I thought this was great, much better than i hoped. Highly recommended to anyone who loves, or hates, insects.

Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood (always a possibility) but I just don't get what other people enjoyed about this.
