Caption

Snake mimic hawkmoth caterpillar (Hemeroplanes sp.). When disturbed the caterpillar pulls in its legs and head and expands the front part of its body, which takes the appearance of a snake. The brown part which appears to be the top of the snake's head is the underside of the caterpillar. Photographed in Costa Rica.
