Critter of the Week: Herbivorous alpine beetle

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:28 pm on 19 July 2019

This week's critter is the Protodendrophagus antipodes or Herbivorous alpine beetle. Up until recently this beetle was thought to be rare then it was found somewhere unexpected - living an alpine existence along much of the length of the South Island mountains.
