Artist's Description

Three lined potato beetles lives in many habitats on many solanaceae plants. Tese guys were found on the highly toxic Datura spp and considered a serious pest. The thing that’s so interesting (and gross) about these beetle larvae is the way they protect themselves. They feast on plants in the nightshade family, even though the leaves are loaded with natural toxins. It gives them “toxic poop”, which they excrete from an opening in the middle of their back. The muddy-looking toxic poop blobs keep would-be predators from eating the little grubs. As a result, the plants can get damaged quite a bit.
