Something you don't hear much about anymore: Mexican Jumping Beans. They aren't actually beans, but seeds from the Northern Mexican shrub Sebastiania palmeri that are infested with the tiny larva of the Jumping Bean Moth (Cydia deshaisiana) - when the larva get too hot, they "jump" inside the seed to move to a cooler location.

You can buy bulk sets of Jumping Beans from Jumping Beans-R-Us for as low as $15.00+S&H.
