If you ever find yourself starting to doubt how amazing Nature can be, all you have to do is take a look at this little guy. Nature’s critters have all sorts of ingenious ways to keep themselves safe, to find find food, or do whatever else they do. Some animals develop toxins to defend themselves and to neutralize their meals. Others are huge and immensely powerful. Or they’re fast and agile. Then still others pretend to be something else entirely. Take for example this Leaf Bug.
Sounds crazy, right? Why would anyone want to be a stupid old leaf? Well, not every other animal eats leaves, now do they? So what better way to fool predators than by using masterful camouflage skills to make them think you’re really a leaf and not worth their time? Some even carry the disguise far enough as to include little “bite marks” along the edges. And when they walk, they have this sort of swaying motion, to mimic the way leaves blow in the breeze. You know what that means? The Leaf Bug and all the members of the Phylliidae family are the pacifist ninjas of the bug world.
Part of Aurora’s Mini Flopsies collection, this little leaf bug will saunter his way into your heart if you let him. At 8 inches in length and stuffed to bursting with beans, then double bagged to make him extra safe and durable, this guy makes an unforgettable treat for the bug-lover in your life!
