Beauty..I guess.. Is this a coward sport like pit bull fighting...like they let them fight until they kill eachother or just until they pin them down?

nah.. it's much more human.the beetle needs to shove the other off a piece of wood of large stick.the ones that fall off are caught by their masters and the on thats still on is the winner

yup they catch them coz these beetles are champion athletes lol they are trained daily by their owners and fed with some sort of protein shake concoction i think

oh, the original question: crayfish, snails and ghost shrimp all eat poopoo. the only problem is, they just make it into more poopoo. Shrimp, crayfish and snail poopoo is much cleaner looking though, it's a nice little pelletized form whereas fish poop is a slimy tube of gross.

and americans use pit bulls and cocks..why can't we use insects? Actually I am sure if something will battle it has been used (we probably have a betta fighting ring)...but that's how you make the big bucks..gambling on lives..instead of working for it yourself..

well some people are just jerks, thats all. i just got back from thailand ate some bugs there.grasshoppers taste like nori seaweed, crikets not so much to my taste, scorpions have a buggy taste, meal worms taste like fries but i skipped the cicada too menacing and large looking, dint have tarantula had white ants though cruchy buggers =)
