Gone are the days of having to wander the aisles of a big-box store to create a baby registry for your soon-to-be.

There are more than 4000 different types of ladybugs – and, it’s possible there are some types of ladybugs in our world that haven’t even been found yet.
Ladybugs have sticky feet. This helps them climb and even crawl upside down on a leaf without falling off. (How would you like sticky feet?)

Ladybugs come in a variety of colors – some are orange, yellow and red.
