A video of three golden tortoise beetles, crawling on a man’s palm has surfaced on the internet.

Indian Forest Service Officer Susanta Nanda took to Twitter and wrote, “Sometimes, all that glitters is gold. The Golden Tortoise Beetle found in Southeastern Asia.”

The beetle species that looks like an impressive metallic gold is known as Charidotella Sexpunctata. These beetles have a unique defense mechanism when troubled as they turn a reddish-brown color.
