      If that wasn’t beautiful enough, the jewel Caterpillar turned into such beautiful butterfly after metamorphosis. Nothing can be compared to the beauty of nature where a single glimpse of any such adorable species can make your day.

      "Lagarta transparente é fotografada no México" Fotógrafo flagrou o animal raro, pertencente à espécie 'Acraga coa', em uma árvore próxima a Cancun. O fotógrafo amador Gerardo Aizpuru encontrou um exemplar da espécie Acraga coa ainda na forma de lagarta, próximo a Cancun, no México. Conhecido como "Jewel Caterpillar" (algo como "Lagarta Preciosa", em português), o animal possui aparência translúcida, que funciona como uma forma de camuflagem.
