Oh my goodness, so cool!!
Fun fact! Many species have evolved innovative ways to avoid predation through blending into their surroundings or mimicking a toxic or otherwise dangerous organism. I would imagine most birds would think twice before attempting to snap up this caterpillar that looks uncannily like a small snake at first glance!https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/3...

Amazing. Looks like a dragon.(if one existed)
I also thought it was a snake at first! Cool spotting!
At first I thought it was some kind of snake...but then I read the title.....what a cool caterpillar !! Awesome find!
Nice work, Ashish--if this isn't the right ID, it almost has to a relative.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eupanacra
Peter its must be Eupanacra elegantulus then. Long nose like mouth portion of this caterpillar is mostly stretched out while it is in advancing position.
Thanks, hookgv--I thought I was the only one--the thumbnail automatically sent my brain toward seahorse.
Wow, thought it was a seahorse actually..lol
Gran forma de iniciar en el proyecto una excelente foto y una magnifica especie.
Very cool picture! Looks like these caterpillars can expand and contract (judging from the link above) - in which case might be completely different appearance once contracted?
Looks like this one http://photos.divydovy.com/keyword/snake...
Way to track it down Peter. That's another great photo of it, but I didn't see anywhere saying what it was.
It's not a hornworm, sphinx or hawk...http://www.flickr.com/photos/gogo159/267...
