... That's a pretty disturbing statement man.. I think many keep dart frogs as a hobby because of an innate respect for living creatures big AND small. I dont know if killing a bug to keep him from moving so you can take a picture of it will be well received.

I dont know what kind of beetle it is.

First of all, insects are animals.

Second of all, frogs eating bugs to survive is a lot different than killing a bug to take a picture of it.

Third, I am not kidding.

Killing a bug in a humane way to study or add it to a collection is one thing. I am not coming down on you or judging your actions, I just wanted to point out that you may not be well received on this forum. Of course I could be wrong!

It could be a dermestid beetle.. there are several beetles that colloquially go under the name of larder beetle.
