Thats so cool! Thanks Sergio!
Awesome, impressive, congrats !!!
mcaul6515, if you're asking about the cotton like "tail" of this hopper, the answer is no. The urine of this little bug has a great amount of sugar, which hardens in contact with the air. So, if a predator atacks its rear side, it can escape unharmed. The white, powderlike substance that covers its body is indeed caused by the fungus.
Do they go fuzzy when they die?
It was actually dead, Gilma.
Fuzzy at both ends :-(
Beautiful!! Sad it won't live for long!!
Amazing and a bit spooky :)
