Mystery creature of the week

There were a few right answers for last week’s Mystery Creature, did you guess it? This week’s creature is a lot smaller and a land dweller this time.

This series is just a little fun to start off the week, I post a picture of an animal on a Monday and you can feel free to say what you think it is in the comments below. If you want some hints just ask or why not do a little gooling or research of you own to see if you can work it out?

At the end of the week I will reveal what the creature is, along with a little information or interesting facts about it.

Cute or ugly, what do you think and can you identify it?

      Great name for it though Muuka, isn’t it? 🙂

    Looks like a cute and fluffy ant 🙂 …. but it’s a species of wingless wasp related to the Red Velvet Ant, nicknamed the Panda Ant because its markings resemble those of a giant panda.
