Also known has the Hawk Moth Caterpillar, this little dude scares off predators by transforming his appearance into that of a damn freakin’ snake. That’s diabolical. He does this by pulling in his legs and expanding his rear-end, at which point the predators run like hell. Incidentally, that was a talent of a chick I knew in college. Anyway, the snake’s head is actually the caterpillar’s tail. Nature, man. Anyhoo, Snakehead Caterpillar.
