The famous Peanut Head Lantern Fly (Fulgora lanternaria) with a hollow head that is identical to a peanut! It is also known as the alligator bug because on its peanut face there are teeth and eyes that look like a gator! Yikes! World-famous this is also a wax maker and its abdomen is covered with a white wax, which is a deterrent to predators. It also has huge false eyes on its wings. You just have to have this one! A conversation piece for any collection. 

(*the amount of white waxy substance on the abdomen can differ from individual to individual example, as all are slightly different)
