Amazing that a beautiful moth came from one of the ugliest, yet very fascinating caterpillar.

Curled Millipede. Exhibiting its main defense mechanism, a millipede curls into a tight spiral. In this fashion it protects its legs—on average between 100 and 300, not the thousand its name suggests—inside its body.
Looks almost like a picture of a Millipede i took a couple \years ago, except this one is much darker in color than the one i took. 19-curled-millipede_9350_990x742

Alabaster Nudibranch (A nudibranch is a member of Nudibranchia, a group of soft-bodied, marine gastropod mollusks which shed their shell after their larval stage. They are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. There are more than 3,000 described species. They are often casually called sea slugs, but many sea slugs belong to taxonomic groups which are not closely related to nudibranchs. A number of these other sea slugs are often confused with nudibranchs.)

Devil's Flower Mantis -- Looks like an alien. One of the largest types of praying mantis, the Devil’s Flower Mantis is also one of the strangest. And that’s saying a lot when you’re talking about praying mantids. Females of the species can measure up to 5 inches (13 cm) long, and have developed a range of natural coloring that allows them to mimic the Devil’s Flower, a type of orchid.

How frightening, unappealing, ugly and/or generally disagreeable does an animal need to be before it's dubbed a “devil”? The answer is “plenty” as there aren't that many devils among the world's cornucopia of ornery critters. These 7 amazing animal devils aren't actually evil, of course, they just look that way... and appearing, smelling and acting devilish are the keys to their success as species. The Giant Devil’s Flower Mantis (Idolomantis diabolica) is a macro-photographer’s favorite.
One of the largest types of praying mantis, the Devil’s Flower Mantis. Females of the species can measure up to 5 inches (13 cm) long, and have developed a range of natural coloring that allows them to mimic the Devil’s Flower, a type of orchid. Mantids are predators, and their hunting style usually involves sitting motionless until their prey comes within reach, and then whipping their forearms out at lightning speed to snag flies, beetles, even, in some cases, birds. The Devil’s Flower Mantis uses color patterns that mimic a flower to actually lure its prey within reach.
