Creepy As Hell: Caterpillar With A Skull On Its Head

October 16, 2012

This is Phylllodes Imperialis, the Imperial Fruit Sucking Moth, in its caterpillar form. It has a giant skull and eyeballs on its head to scare away predators. It worked on me and I'm not even a predator. There are some much better shots after the jump courtesy of planet.nerd's Flickr, which show one's skull-face from all angles. Because we need that. If I had to see it, so do you -- that's how this works.

Hit the jump for the coolest Halloween accessory since the plastic pirate cutlass.





Thanks to Vanessa, who told me I could go trick-or-treating with her. Cool, but only if we go to the rich neighborhoods where they hand out full-size candy bars.
