White Sands National Monument, New Mexico, USA
This beetle track, photographed at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico (USA), might be from the darkling beetle (Tenebrionidae).
Beetle tracks are some of the most distinctive insect tracks you might find. Their large back feet make endless sideways tick marks as they waddle along. Almost all insect tracks will look like small trails of many tiny jumbled feet.
