We live in a strange, beautiful, and often alien-looking world. Case in point: the crystal-clear Jewel Caterpillar of Central and South America, pictured here in all its translucent glory. This particular caterpillar (which is known more formally as Acraga Coa, and metamorphoses into this equally stunning orange moth) was spotted by photographer Gerardo Aispuru near Cancun, Mexico

"Lagarta transparente é fotografada no México" Fotógrafo flagrou o animal raro, pertencente à espécie 'Acraga coa', em uma árvore próxima a Cancun. O fotógrafo amador Gerardo Aizpuru encontrou um exemplar da espécie Acraga coa ainda na forma de lagarta, próximo a Cancun, no México. Conhecido como "Jewel Caterpillar" (algo como "Lagarta Preciosa", em português), o animal possui aparência translúcida, que funciona como uma forma de camuflagem.
