Earth Phenomenon
The Pink Katydid
First discovered in 1887, TreeHugger argues you’d be more likely to spot a unicorn in the wild than one of these precious hot pink critters, especially given only one in 500 have this fluorescent glow.
The pink coloring of some katydids is due to erythrism, an unusual reddish pigmentation that can affect the body, skin, feathers, hair or eggshells of the insect. Diet or a genetic mutation are the two causes of the condition.
