This Tiny Insect Looks Like a Walking Piece of Popcorn (Video)

When you think about it, the real world is almost as magical as it is depicted in cartoons and fantasy movies.

The late independent scientist, Andreas Kay, shot the above video of the Ecuadorian Nymph. Kay, who explored Ecuador’s biodiversity while alive, captured the video as the puffy insect ran around on his finger.

This flatid planthopper nymph from the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador is covered with waxy filaments for protection.
