Diet

Sunburst diving beetles are predators and scavengers of small animals, such as insects and snails, but also young fish and tadpoles. 

Fun fact

The behavior of this diving beetle has been compared to a scuba diver, since it carries with it a bubble of air as it dives down into the water.

Habitat

Sunburst diving beetles are found in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Mexico.

The diving beetle has a unique bifocal lens which is asymmetric. The protein makeup of the middle of the lens is different from that along the edges allowing for two images to be formed within the eye at the same time.

Animal zone

Deep Blue One

Deep Blue One is home to an array of colourful tropical fish, amazing corals and large mangrove trees.

Representing where the rainforests meet the reef, the lagoon reflects the diversity of aquatic life and unique habitats found in and around many of the islands and archipelagos in the western Pacific Ocean, from tropical North Queensland to the outer islands of Palau in Micronesia.
