The Jewel Beetle

The Sungei Buhol Wetland Reserve, in Singapore is spans over 130 hectares of land and as of 2003 has been recognized as an ASEAN Heritage Park. Containing 141 species of birds alone, the reserve is also home to a number of very geographically unique bugs. The Jewel beetle, known for their glossy iridescent colors, though beautiful, have unfortunately resulted in them being ended up in many insect collectors’ collection, with only the smaller bugs still easily found today.
