Beetle.png

A stag beetle, family Lucanidae.

Beetles are insects found in a few areas of Azeroth. Some small beetles are critters, while larger ones are beasts. They are not silithid, although some silithid look like beetles. Those hardy insect can dwell in just about any climate and are known to thrive on battlefields after the fighting has ended.

Vanity/Battle pet

Notes

  • Beetles commonly feed on plants and other smaller insects, though some species have developed very strange appetites. One species feeds entirely on ash and another is said to feed directly off the chaotic energies of the Old Gods.[citation needed]
  • Beetles and their larvae have a variety of strategies to avoid being attacked by predators or parasitoids.

Patch changes

  • World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3 (15-Nov-2010): Added as a tamable pet family.
