What is a Tiger Beetle?
Tiger Beetles are insects found in many areas of Europe, but in the UK it can only be found in coastal sites in Lancashire and Cumbria. Look out for these attractive insects, which are mainly dark red on their body, but with a greenish sheen and yellow/white stripes on the wing cases. They can be recognised by their long legs, large eyes, and long curved mandibles.
