Stunning Vibrant Metallic Gold Color Insects

Nature is truly the mightiest artist itself! This amazing insect is the “Painted Weevil” (Eurhinus magnificus), a splendid species that sports a metallic emerald, gold, copper and ruby exoskeleton that makes it look like a tiny jewel when spotted in the grass.


This “Golden Tortoise Beetle” (Charidotella sexpunctata) is a tiny, metallic gold color North American insect that belongs to the leaf beetle family. It has a magical quality, not only because of the brilliance of its color, but also because the brilliance isn’t permanent. In fact, this species has the ability to rapidly change color during copulation or when it is disturbed by predators.
