Frog leg beetle - Sagra longicollis – Blue

The frog leg beetle (Sagra longicollis), also known as the blue frog leg beetle, is a striking species of beetle that belongs to the longhorn beetle family. This species of beetle is known for its vibrant blue colors and long necks, which give them a unique appearance.

The body of the frog leg beetle is elongated and slender with a striking blue coloration that may be interspersed with dark stripes or spots. The legs are also long and thin, which gives the beetle a certain elegance. The name "frog leg beetle" comes from the hopping movements that this beetle sometimes makes, similar to those of a frog.

These beetles are mainly native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia, where they live in the treetops and feed on plant material. However, they can also be found in gardens and other wooded areas.

Although the frog leg beetle does not usually pose a direct threat to humans, the larvae of these beetles can sometimes appear as pests in agricultural crops, especially in rice fields, where they can feed on the roots of plants.

However, in some regions, frog leg beetles are also considered a kind of delicacy and used in local cuisine. However, this practice is controversial and often criticized by animal rights activists.

Overall, the frog leg beetle is a fascinating insect with its striking appearance and interesting lifestyle in the rainforests of Southeast Asia.
