Sagra fermonta

Another beautiful beetle, the Frog Beetle ~ Sagra buqueti; Sagra fermonta ~ so called because of the back legs resembling those of a frog.  These beetles come in metallic colours and have the ability to climb the smoothest of surfaces due to their ‘sticky’ feet ~ sticky because they are covered in many tiny hairs.  Frog Beetles originate from South East Asia.

Sadly there is a huge trade in selling dead exotic beetles for framing and jewellery. I personally will never buy any of these dead beetles ~ I only collect live exotic beetles.

I’ve pre~ordered 10 of these beetles ~ not sure when they will be shipped to me, but when they’re here of course I’ll tell you all about them 🙂
