This model simulates a beetle that roams around a territory containing food sources. It has a scent sensor that enables it to sense when it is near food, home in on it and eat it. The beetle has an energy level that is depleted as it moves around, and is increased as it eats food. Mouse buttons can be used to replenish food sources. This model was probably the inspiration for the more complex Ants model written in Java by KC Tan (see antsTan1999). [Chris R]
