…Katydids come in pink?

Pink Katydid

No, this isn’t a Photoshoped image of the Barbie bug collection. It’s a real live (or at least alive when the picture was taken) pink Katydid (Amblycorypha) from Monroe County, Michigan. Apparently the Katydid, unfazed by survival of the fittest, dons this color with no fear of being found and eaten. If only they could capture and breed these things, they could create a hoard of screaming pre-teen girls who suddenly love bugs and have to have one of these for Christmas.
