Considering the source of the poser, it is probably a Kiwi

No Sarcasm man, as much as I hate to say it, it's not a kiwi.

It is terrestrial.

It might be able to fly... I don't know if this exact species does, but it's not important.

Yes but they would not be visible at normal scales.

Yes, that is very close to true colour - it is metallic so light angles etc will affect it.

This one is similar, (like the poster it's an Aussie) ...

The metallic surface reflects the colours and forms of their environment so functions as camouflage.

[BTW An incarnation of famous pop combo "The Beatles" was called "The Silver Beetles".]
