Twitter user Amazing Nature shared the video of shiny golden beetle with the caption, "The Golden Tortoise. Awesome Nature." Regularly, videos of these unusual insects capture netizens' attention on social media.
In the video, three golden tortoise beetles are creeping on the person's palm. As he focuses the camera on the beetles, one of them flies away, and the other reaches the tip of the fingers. The Amazing Nature does not disclose more details of the place or clip.
After being shared online, the video has gone crazy viral and has accumulated over one million views and over 43,000 likes. After watching it, some users remembered their childhood, whereas few saw it for the first time and expressed their opinions in the comments section.
The golden tortoise beetle is widely found in eastern North America, west of Iowa and Texas. It is one of three kinds of tortoise beetle species found in Florida.
They are called 'golden tortoise beetle' because of their translucent shell, similar to a tortoise's hard surface. Interestingly, the golden tortoise beetle may not be found in the standard golden colour. The golden colour of the insect changes at every stage of life and is ultimately lost at death.
