Came home to find some sort of beetle on my beardies face???

Postby ohitslexluthor » Sun Jul 07, 2019 7:05 pm

Just came home from work and noticed this beetle looking thing on the side of my beardies face... Should I be concerned? No blood or anything; But it does look like it has sharp teeth or something..

He was sound asleep and didn't seem to be in any discomfort; I got it off squished it and he went right back to bed.
I cleaned his cage yesterday morning and my mom turned off his light @ 8pm and it wasn't in there.
Idk how it could-of gotten in his cage.

I'm not sure what kind of beetle that is. It doesn't look like a lightning bug though. If it is just dark and you don't see signs of bioluminescence then I wouldn't worry about it.
