Weevils are specialized beetles with an elongated head and a protruding, often curved snout that bears the mouthparts and antennae. Most weevils are plainly or concealingly colored, but a few are bright. Adults are commonly found on flowers and fruit, often escaping potential predators by “playing possum”–that is, pretending to be dead.
Los gorgojos son escarabajos especializados con cabeza elongada y hocico alargado en el que alberga las estructuras bucales y las antenas. La mayoría de los gorgojos son de colores poco vistosos, siendo la minoría coloridos. Los adultos son comúnmente encontrados sobre las flores y frutas, a menudo escapándose de los predadores potenciales “haciéndose los muertos” cuando son atacados.
