For some reason this little bug really made me go ‘Awwwww…!’. I think it was because 1. it looks just like a heart-shaped leaf and 2. because if you look at it’s tiny face I think you’ll agree with me that it has a certain friendly expression.

This is a False Eye Lantern Bug (Odontoptera carrenoi)who, I’m assuming, has no problem blending in with his surroundings. No way I’d spot this guy in the middle of a jungle! But I wish I could… then he could be my little leafy friend forevers!
