Did you miss the Chrysina themed Bug Box? A few more Deluxe boxes are available now, featuring:

With their dazzling, metallic bodies, these beetles really do look like living gems. But their homes in Central and South America are full of hungry predators. How can being so flashy help them survive?
It turns out Chrysina is a masterful manipulator. Some creatures' eyes simply can't perceive the particular wavelengths of light bouncing off the beetle. Others can, but the beetle just blends in with the countless glittering beads of water in the rainforest around it. If you're lucky enough to spot one, you're sure to treasure the moment.
Don't forget to subscribe to the Bug Box in the future, so you never miss out.
