This week’s Mystery Creature

Another week, another mystery creature. This week we are moving out of the sea and back to land with a very shiny looking insect. Do you know what it is?

Remember if you don’t it can be fun to try and find out and you can ask for clues or ask a question if you want to. So start guessing and I’ll reveal all at the end of the week!

    Where do you find these? The flippant side of me wants to suggest it is the gold wrapping of a terrys sweet! I know I am wrong though. I am fascinated by this one, but then I keep saying that

      Ha it does look a bit like a sweet wrapper Tric. Isn’t it amazing looking? I think this is one of my favourites so far. To give you a hint… my husband guessed its name just by its looks! There is a mention of colour in the name and it is named after another animal that may or may not look like the shape on its back 😉
