As for Horutoto, these things do aggro. Got owned by one a long time ago when I was in there exploring as a low level.

At North Landing they max out at level 19. Range seems to be from 15-19.

They do link, trust me on this. I was level 20 MNK/level 10 THF at the time and these little buggers, 3 of them, linked and chased me. *panic time* lol I got lost and someone helped me by picking them off one by one.

Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers.

Yes, I agree, they do in fact link (in Inner Horutoto Ruins at very least).

Hi, I've been killing these for a long time in hopes of getting lots and lots of Beetle Jaws, however, I have killed way over 50 and not a single one has dropped it... Is it just bad luck or are any of you experiencing the same problem? I'm a level 30 THF with Treasure Hunter and I still can't get these... Maybe I should just head to Saurmogue Champaign.

As far as I can tell, beetle jaws are just extremely rare drops, even from higher-level beetles.

If you're farming them for Bonecraft, I'd suggest just farming some other way, then buying from the AH. Most of them in there are just from leveling parties.
