A Real PINK Bug!!

This is not photoshopped or weird lighting or the result of spray painting.

This is the rare pink katydid.

Only about one in 500 katydids is pink, making it very rare.

Diet or a genetic mutation causes the reddish over pigmentation.

Bugs tend to be pretty gross but this one is actually kinda… cute.

Weird to call a bug cute but it's just so cool.

A hot pink bug. Who knew.
