Behold! The “skull” caterpillar of the Imperial Fruit Sucking Moth and winner annually of “The Australian Caterpillar Halloween Contest.”

This amazing little creature, an endangered species fighting habitat loss in the Australian rainforest, features a painted skull and eyeballs on its enlarged head to scare away predators and basically anything else.

Much like the Monarch caterpillar, which survives off Milkweed, the Skull caterpillar prefers the vine Carronia multisepalea, a collapsed rainforest shrub, for food and habitat for breedings.

Australian conservationists are now protecting habitat where the caterpillar is found in hopes of protecting and boosting populations. Take a look at an additional amazing photo, courtesy of the Flickr group Plant.Nerd below.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
