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