Trilobite Beetle

Duliticola sp

Description:

An amazing Prehistoric looking creature. Looks like a tiny teddy bear in a huge Transformer suit! 4cm, red , brownblack in color. Look at the little head and eyes in picture 4-5.

Habitat:

Near Jungle and mangroves. Our path near the garden. Ban Kuku, Phuket, Thailand.

Notes:

This amazing creature had a photo shoot session at our porch before I brought it back where I found it. It was AMAZING!!!!! When I put him down gently he tipped, but maneuvered himself so that he was the right way up in no time. And WHAT IS that white thing that he has at its bottom. He seems to suck himself to things ( A leaf that I transported him in ) and he uses it to walk.
