Unknown beetle  - Mycetophagus

Unknown beetle - Mycetophagus
Kuna, Idaho, USA
Captive bred larva. These guys have been feeding on cat food, both rotten and fresh, fungus is apparently not needed in their diet. These grow incredibly fast, and it seems that they can go from egg to adult within 2 weeks!
