Madagaskar - Beetles

The beetles (order Coleoptera) is the largest order within the largest class 
(Insecta) of the largest phylum (Arthropoda) of all living organisms. 
The first beetles probably appeared over 200 million years ago and through 
natural selection they have spread 
into all terrestrial and freshwater habitats and adopted all ecological niches 
from parasites to scavengers and from herbivores to carnivores. 
Most beetles have a tough, rigid exoskelton; their front wings are hardened 
into wing covers (elytra) that protect the membranous hind wings. 
When they fly, the front wings are held open to provide lift while the hind 
wings beat franticly to keep the insect airborne.
