Beauty of a Beast…

wpid-img_20150908_082828_1441693643031.jpgThought you might to see what I found chilling today at St. John’s University ~ a Batocera rubus albofasciata, otherwise known as a Mango Longhorn Beetle ~ looks kinda handsome but turns out to be a pest, as it bores into trees and munches its way through them….

Turns out to be quite common in Taiwan, but if even one turns up in Europe, it’s a mega-crisis, with special monitoring in place…..

Beauty ‘n the Beast? Here they’re combined in one ~ ah, the Beauty of a Beast!
