Megalopyge opercularis by Caterpillar hunter: The larval form of the Southern Flannel Moss is deceptively adorable with its long, luxuriant hair-like setae, making it resemble a Persian cat. However, the 'fur' of the larva contains venomous spines that cause extremely painful reactions in human skin upon contact which may be localized or systemic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalopyge_opercularis #Caterpillar #Southern_Flannel_Mouth

Peanut Head Moth by ali.schmidt, via Flickr: The 'machachas' of Costa Rica is imposing, but harmless. The 'peanut' is a hollow, false head and the eyes are located directly behind it. Thanks to @Yves Paul Scherer Sciarra! #Machachas #ali_schmidt #Peanut_Head_Moth #Fulgora_laternaria
