A lot of caterpillars, moths and butterflies have eyespots to mimic larger animals and scare off predators. This little fellow is the first caterpillar we've seen that successfully mimics a cute li'l puppy to soften the heart of any predator. WHO KNEW BUGS COULD BE SO FREAKIN' CUTE!
So, apparently caterpillars, moths and butterflies often mimic eye spots of larger animals to scare off predators. This is the first caterpillar they've captured that mimics the look of a cute, little puppy dog. It's even kinda cute!
Nope, not a rodent - this is a swallowtail caterpillar, and those eyes and ears are just spots. The "nose" is actually the caterpillar's entire head.

You may want to handle this beautiful caterpillar... but definitely DO NOT! Those spines along its body give off an incredibly potent sting which has been described as "worse than three wasp stings."

Ocelot! I want this picture framed and put in my room!!! My biggest passion is to photograph animals. I love gymnastics and cheerleading, but being able to take a picture and have a still life of a majestic creation is so gratifying. This picture is absolutely courageous the Cat's eyes draw you in and her spots are so dramatic in and sharp that you just want to hang it in your room. This is one beautiful animal!

One of the most beautiful moths in the world, the Comet moth or Madagascan Moon Moth, is named after its long red 'tails'. There are a number of moon moths with tails varying in length from mere stubs to long streamers. Biologists now think that those with the longest tails such as this species have evolved more recently than those with shorter tails. The Comet Moth is still fairly common in its native Madagascar.

Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar/ are those plastic wiggly eyes glued on? Nope they are for real
Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar - not technically an animal, but amazing none the less!
The Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar is one of the best mimics known. In its early stages it resembles a brown bird dropping and is found exposed during the day on leaves. After molting to the 4th instar the caterpillar turns green. Both the early instars and the later ones display the snake's head mimicry, with large spots on the swollen thorax giving the appearance of a snake's head. The spots look like eyes with a white highlight to simulate moisture. Photo Michael Hodge Flickr
