Excellent camouflage! I shudder to think how many snakes are killed on the road. Great spotting.

Mega-cuteness alert! I can't comprehend the magnitude of its cuteness without more coffee. I particularly love that last photo. Awesome spotting, Brian.

Hi Vivien. Great spotting. I think go with Richard's suggestion. He knows the local fauna far better than I do. I can see the difference between the two species now, so I think it's a pretty safe bet. With your spottings, if you know the genus but not the species, you can add something like this to the scientific name field.... Chrysocoris sp. (possibly C. ornatus). You've recorded your spotting and that is most important, but other details always help.

Lovely spotting, Vivien. That is a gorgeous bug. I've made an ID suggestion for you, but there doesn't seem to be an abundance of common names. I did find this - https://indiabiodiversity.org/observatio... Jewel bugs or metallic shield bugs are generic names.

Just like a little matchbox toy. I hope he/she has a long and happy life. Well spotted, Brady.

Yes, that is so Angkor Wat! Amazing bark. I've never seen anything like it.

He was mega-persistant, Ava, and nothing was going to stop him from building that mound, other than running out of mulch. I've seen mounds over 6 foot high out in the bush. Animals are so driven by instinct.
