Do Bugs Mutate?
Did a night walk at the Lornie trail, and James found a pink katydid. Possibly mutated? Discoloured?
#1 The pink Katydid
#2 Found numerous Harvestman (Opiliones) scampering around the dead leaf litter
#3 Top view of Sir Daddy Long Legs
#4 Twig spider, aka Whip Spider, aka Twig-Like Feather Legged Spider
#5 Wenzhan found this tiny Praying Mantis
#6 It didn’t really want to stay still for me, until it found some food to feast on
#7 Peering up at my camera
#8 Done with food – brush teeth!
#9 Weevil playing dead.
#10 Trap Jaw Ant (Odontomachus) found on the dead leaf litter. Never stopped to pose… just went on and on and on and on…
#11 Closer view of the trap-jaw ant
#12 Stink bug nymph? Quite a few of these at a junction where we stopped
#13 It had the similar 2 spots on its back as the one Melvyn found in Gunung Santubong
#14 The one from Guning Santubong, but with more fascinating patterns on its back
