Strange Beetle on Hebburn riverside path
Posted by N44 on October 12, 2021, 20:26:46
My son saw this strange looking beetle crossing the wet footpath near the riverside today. The black smooth shiny part on the left is like a scorpions tail with two white things on the end. The head end looks like it has horns. Any idea what it could be?
Maybe its some kind of foriegn bug thats family originally came to the Tyne many years ago amongst the ships ballast. Its hard to make out as there was bits of grass on the path aswell.
