Extraordinary Silver Beetle Snapped In Costa Rica


They look like tiny toys you'd find in a Christmas cracker - but these incredible silver beetles are the real deal. The shell of this extraordinary futuristic-looking creature, which measure around an inch in length, dazzles in the stunning metallic colour.

The funny-looking beetles were snapped by professional French photographer Roland Seitre in the mountain region of Costa Rica, Central America.

Used to get a lot of these and these around my grandparents' place when I was a kid.
