Description

This guy was very interesting it was one of the most interesting bugs I have managed to find. This spittle bug is one of many that make the foamy bubbles on plants often known as "Snake Spit" This bug is mainly black and red with a red dot on the lower portion of his head section and and two dull yellow lines on his back. He was a pretty good size and really caught my eye. I was with a few others including my mother and we were all very interested by this little guy. It even had some yellow outline on his body. It was very beautiful and one of my newer favorites. It was a pretty stout and squat bug. It made me think it was some kind of hopper of some type. Either way he was very interesting.
