Rule number one for macrophotography in the field is "CHECK". And then "CHECK AGAIN". This small caterpillar has an unusual shape, and was covered with debris (mostly parts of leaves and stems). These were attached to several hooks that the caterpillar had in the body. Another singular feature of this cat is the series of teeth like protuberances it has in its "neck", three at each side. As I don't know anything about it, I can only wonder if this is a case moth caterpillar that lost its case or if it is another species of moth which also adopts that kind of camo.
