Another Interesting Mexican Bug

This is another bug that I found that I thought I should document. My guess is that it's probably some sort of beatle but I could be wrong. I could also be wrong about the fact that it does not frighten me and is kind of cute. Kind of gives me the same feeling that a lady bug does. It's interesting and fun and you need not fear it.

It's been hanging out in my hallway for quite a while now and I see it and say hello to it. It has no problems climbing walls but does not jump, fly or spin webs. It is also quite big. Maybe the length of a ten peso coin and it is quite thick and not flat. I think I'll name it Verde Amarillo as it is such a distinguished name and well, those are its colors*.



Again, if you know what the hell this is, or if I shouldn't cuddle with it in bed, let me know.




*You know I'm originally from Canada and feel stupid about spelling the word "color" without the "u" . But I don't want any of you Los Estados Unidadenses to think that I don't know how to spell the word "color". I do. It's just that in Canada we spell it "colour". So I kind of feel like I'm betraying the original spelling that I'm use to. I get all stressed out about it too, depending on who I'm chatting with or who is going to read this. I will tell you that I will not say "rubber bands" and will stick to "elastics". So it's really a give and take situation. And you just better get use to it!

    Nice stink bug Liz! They are cute, just don't vacuum them...sheesh.

    I think you should spell the way you want to, we can adapt...really. Just don't go calling pencil erasers "rubbers" the way the Brits do, that one always throws me off!

    I am a big fan of the U's personally! I also enjoy 'shoppe' instead of plain old 'shop' but I don't think that's Can-ya-den talk.
    I likey the cute bugs! Do you live in a hut in the selva or what -I never see any of these crazy creatures! Do I live in a bubble?!

    I just saw one hanging onto the screen outside my bedroom window, and I most certainly do not live in the forest! It´s cute to look at, but I´ll keep it outside. Maybe I´ll send it your way, bell sister, so we can share!!
