The Extraordinary Pink Katydid

You may well be wondering what on earth this extraordinary looking creature is. In fact it’s a katydid and is the result of a genetic accident or mutation which makes around one in 500 of these insects turn a funny shade of pink! The Ark in Space takes a look at this extraordinary mutation with an excellent gallery of images of something it is unlikely you will ever see up close!
