Predacious Diving Beetle (Cybister fimbriolatus)

Another interesting beetle adaptation. The predacious diving beetle lives and hunts underwater, but when it needs to relocate, it can take to the air until it locates another suitable body of water. These beetles are large enough to kill and consume small fish, however they typically hunt other invertebrates.
