Golden Beetle

He lives at La Reserva and is seen here sitting on a Yos leaf. We plant many seedlings of this tree. There are several species of Yos in Costa Rica. They provide berries and leaves for the Two-toes Sloths to eat and they only lose their leaves for a short time in November. For this reason they are very desirable for shade during the bright hot, dry summers.
