This is a video of nature lover and photographer Mark Bowler getting up close and personal with a snake-mimic caterpillar (Hemeroplanes triptolemus), which has evolved an ass that looks like the head of a venomous pit viper in order to avoid predation. I’d say that works. I’m not even interested in eating it and I’d stay the hell away. The caterpillar eventually metamorphs Pokemon-style into the far less impressive sphinx moth. It must suck to be a moth, you know? Butterflies are so beautiful and you’re like, shit-brown and dusty and can’t stop flying into candles. Shoot, if I were a moth I’d probably fly straight into a fire too now that I think about it.
