Guy Who Decides To Touch Strange Bug He’s Never Seen Is Left In Utter Disbelief

My general rule of thumb is not to touch and bugs – not on purpose anyway! There are a lot of people out there who feel the same – but not the man in this video! While out hiking, he saw an unusual creature and decided to give it a gentle touch. The rather unassuming insect turned out to be a rare mountain katydid which showed off its beauty when touched!

Katydid’s are also called bush crickets and can be found on every continent except Antarctica. Most species of katydid look like grasshoppers and eat leaves, bark, flowers, and seeds. In many areas, they are considered pests and some of the larger species have a painful bite!

Take a look at this video

Native people in Africa will eat katydids as they are a good source of protein! This is just more evidence that you can’t judge a book by its cover! What an interesting and beautiful creature!
