Eupholus Bennetti

Smurf madness seems to have reached Africa! Actually, the bug has been a regular in the rainforests of Papua New Guinea. Named after famous naturalist George Bennet, the Eupholus benetti’s color is a strong warning to any predators, as the bug is very bitter to taste!

Phymateus Viridipes

This may be one of the most beautiful locusts ever to grace the face of the Earth, but it is poisonous to animals who eat it. Because it feeds on the milkweed plant (which is highly poisonous) and other toxic plants, the locust has also become poisonous. The bright colors are saying just that: stay away, I’m deadly!
