Pincate Beetle Cohabitating with Scorpions

Here is a locally collected pincate, or clown beetle (Eleoodes sp.) living with a desert hairy scorpion. He also shared digs with a feisty local striped tail. Neither gave him any jib! They are so funny to watch scuttling around in a headstand position & are impervious to scorpions. Frugivore.
Sorry it's such a crap photo, phone camera still on the fritz. I just thought this guy is awfully cool and wanted to share his coolocity! :cool:
