NOT a Reptile


Stashed in: Bugs!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

This is NOT a reptile! This is the larva of the Hemeroplanes triptolemus moth. In its larval form it is capable of expanding its anterior body segments to give it the appearance of a snake, complete with simulated eyes. It's mimicry extends even to the point where it will harmlessly strike at potential predators.

That's amazing, Geege.

All grown up.
