A harmless caterpillar or a poisonous snake? --- You will be amazed!
This small Hemeroplanes caterpillar from Ecuador has devised a foolproof strategy to scare its enemies whenever it feels threatened --- it expands one end of its body to mimic the shape of the head of a snake!
Not only that -- the markings on its back help this caterpillar to be confused with a dangerous and poisonous serpent. Not to mention the zig-zag movement that the false head performs! An unbeatable tactic that frightens curious tourists and predators alike!
