Desert Ironclad Beetle

Zopherus is a genus of desert beetles in the ironclad beetle family Zopheridae (closely related to Tenebrionidae family desert beetles). The ones sold through this listing are black, sometimes with bits of gray coloration/patterning but not always. They measure somewhere between about half an inch and 3/4 of an inch. Like death feigning beetles, they play dead when disturbed but even more convincingly in that their antennae fall into little recesses designed to protect them (see second photo).
