Jaak Põder - Piece of shi*
Tortoise beetle larva’s behaviour is pretty unique – due to the shape of its body the larva is almost invisible on suitable leaves. To make it even more hard to find it it keeps its own shi* attached to its anal hook (raised above the body) so looking from above it seems there is just a piece of shi*.
