Thankyou for your comment I was stoked to find this little guy, there were more females curling their leaves but only one male – cheers John
For me, this is a new bug and extremely interesting! Looks kind of like ET – LOL. Incredible macro work! Congratulations on your feature in Insects, Bugs and Creepy Crawlies – FAVE:>)

Thanks Jo – it is much appreciated – regards
Now that is a strange but interesting bug.. Great capture.
Thank you – all the creatures in Madagascar are amazing – the great thing is they are not bashful so you see so many – regards John :)
I saw a naturalized one at the Insectarium of Montreal. to see it live it must be great. well done
Thanks Manon – they were magic in the wild – it was the season for the female beetles to be making their leaf cacoons – and quite hard to find the males, I will post some of the other Giraffe beetles that we found on the island with different colour forms and fair bit smaller – regards John
Never seen one of these before. What an amazing creature!
Thank you Paul
