He is 1cm long and superfast. All his buddies are jet black but he has some light colouring.
I like him but i want to know who he is and why he is different from his pals.
It's Pterostichus madidus, a species of carabid or ground beetle. Yes, some have red legs and some have black legs. They're mainly predatory eating anything they can find e.g. earthworms, caterpillars but will eat fruit too if they get the chance.
