Did you know that golden tortoise beetles can be found on morning glory leaves and 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. This color change is accomplished by microscopic valves controlling the moisture levels under the shell. Continue reading for more interesting (yet true) facts you might not have known about.

golden tortoise beetle I'm not sure to pin it to animals or design?
The Golden Tortoise Beetle changes color from gold to red when excited. Larvae with their protective fecal parasols, are common on Morning Glory and related plants. Pinned specimens of these beautiful beetles undergo a one-way transformation from gemlike specimens to drab pinned beetles as they dry out in insect collections.
Golden Tortoise Beetle- incredible diversity of nature on show!
