At a birthday party, this little guy just jumped on the pizza. Haven’t seen these around.

Figeater Eating Pizza

Dear Celso,
This green scarab beetle is a Figeater, and adults are commonly reported eating peaches as well as figs.  We presume they may eat ripe tomatoes as well, and it is possible it was attracted to the pizza because of the sweet smell of the sauce.
