This Beetle Creates “Art”
John, Paul, Ringo and George aren't the only "beetles" that have an artistic side. This stag beetle has taken the internet by storm with its talent.
We've seen so many different animals that create pieces of art. It seems like the internet can't get enough of works of art from our furry, scaly, and creepy crawling friends. In Japan, there is a stag beetle named Spike that has been dabbling with markers.
Now remember this is a beetle!
This beetle has over 55.8K followers on Twitter...over 20.3K followers on Instagram...a website...and someone created a fan club page on Instagram dedicated to Spike.
Mandy put some artwork up on eBay and the first piece sold for over $150!!!!!
Who's Googling where you can get your very own stag beetle now?
You may want to hold off.
Since stag beetles are SO popular in Japan there is now a conservation effort. There has been an increase of stag beetles being taken from the wild to become pets and an increasing in importing stag beetles from other Asian countries.
Mandy donates 15% of the money made from Spike's art to stag beetle conservation.
