The Skull-Faced Caterpillar of Australia’s Rainforest

22 May 2021

Do not adjust your set, as it were. This amazing looking animal is the caterpillar of the Pink Underwing Moth, which is found in Australia.  The Ark in Space has a feature (and lots of pictures) of this remarkable creature, which has evolved a rather special way to protect itself from predators. Unfortunately, the pink underwing is on the critically endangered list, but steps are being taken to secure its future.
