A moth lays its eggs on a shrub that lives exclusively in the Mexican desert. The tiny hatchling caterpillars feed on the plant's seed (bean) from the inside. Too much heat or light is dangerous for them so they move vigorously to make the bean roll around until it's in the shade. We can't see inside it, so it looks to us as if the bean generates its own movement.
The moth's scientific name is Laspeyresia Saltitans. What's your scientific name?
The music reminded me of Mexico, so I titled it Jumping Beans. It's arranged for other groups of instruments; just write Jumping Beans into the search bar and all versions will jump onto the screen.
