Australian Jewel Beetles
Australian Jewel Beetles are dying because they’re having sex with beer bottles!
Talk about beer goggles. The bottles have some of the features that attracts beetles. They’re big, orange / brownish, and the dimple at the bottom of the bottle reflects light in the same way a female’s wing covers would.
As a result of the ‘uncanny’ resemblance, the males can’t help but fall head over heels for the bottles and try to have sex with them. Obviously, they’re unsuccessful, and try hard until the hot Australian sun kills them.
