This amazing little, live bean, the size of your fingernail, has been entertaining and fascinating both young and old alike for more than 50 years, proof enough that they are harmless, yet entertaining natural wonders. It is a member of the TORTRICADAE family. This family is somewhat of a curiosity. A moth, of the Genus and Species Larva, TINEOIDEA/ LASPEYRESIA SALTITANS lays its egg in the flower tree called EUPHORBIACEAE SEBASTIANA PAVONIANA, found only in Mexico. The flower then forms a seedpod around the moth egg. This seedpod serves as a temporary home for "JUMPING BEANDITO". When the early May rains start, the seedpod matures, splits into three parts and falls to the ground. The egg turns into a caterpillar, which then consumes the seed inside. The jumping movements are the caterpillar's movements to get to the edible seed. Eventually, the caterpillar will spin a silk cocoon, which causes more jumping. It will then go dormant for a short time. It is not dead. Instead, it is going through metamorphosis. It will turn into a tiny, harmless moth that does not pose any danger to clothes, plants or humans. When it is ready, it will bore a tiny hole in the seedpod and fly away.

My order was delivered promptly; but, we were experiencing extremely cold weather and most were dead. I contacted Bravo and they immediately sent more. Great people to work with! My Mom is having a ball with them!

Haven't seen jumping beans since I was a kid. I got them for my sister-in-law who had never seen them before. The paper that came with them explains exactly what they are and why they move which is very interesting. They're fun to watch!

Great but too many dead. And Amazon won't back it up. I bought ten orders, got three money backs, . Very disappointing jumping beans. But when they work, they are great. My cat loves them.

My Belgian grandson had heard about how the beans jumped around, and he was delighted to have some he could watch.
