Critter Cam 2012 No. 4 - Ouch, he bit me!

Well, not really. This little Plague Soldier Beetle (Chauliognathus lugubris?) is about 21mm long. That's three times the length of the new smallest vertebrate animal recently found.

Funnily enough, these beetles are omnivores so he might have had a bite if he was a bit bigger, or my thumb was a bit smaller...
