Freak of Nature
Freak of Nature | by John Horstman (itchydogimages, SINOBUG) | "A truly bizarre and awesome Moth Caterpillar (Oberthueria sp., Endromidae), hangs in 'lifeless mode' due to my disturbing its branch to get a shot. Body length almost 12cm (~5 inches) plus tail. And yes, thats a shield or hood (similar to a Hooded Mantis) behind its head." Pu'er, Yunnan, China.
