Golden tortoise beetles are common North American beetles that can be found on morning glory leaves, which are their preferred food. They can change color, looking initially like tiny jewels, or golden ladybugs, but can alter the reflectivity of the cuticle so the outer layers become clear, revealing a ladybug type of red coloring with black spots.

What’s a finger monkey, you ask. Well, believe it or not, it’s a monkey the size of a human finger.
