What on Earth is this? Woman discovers creepy ‘snake’ with two heads in her garden

Discovering a creature that defies your expectations can be a moment filled with awe and curiosity, just like what happened to Lujan Eroles, a 46-year-old resident of Santa Fe, Argentina. One day, in her garden, she stumbled upon what appeared to be a snake, but upon closer inspection, revealed itself to be something far less ordinary.

This 10-centimeter-long entity wasn’t a snake but a master of disguise, mimicking a serpent to evade predators. “I have never seen anything like it. It was just like a snake and its eyes were so strange,” Eroles shared with National Geographic, expressing her initial fear and fascination.

The creature, a caterpillar, boasted an evolutionary trick: it resembled a snake, complete with eye-like patterns to ward off potential threats. This discovery not only amazed Eroles and her neighbors but also sparked significant online discussion when she posted a video of the caterpillar.

It quickly became evident that this was a rare sighting of an Elephant Hawk-Moth Caterpillar, a species known for its snake-mimicking defense mechanism.
