Crawly things


the title of the link was "Donald Trump's hair discovered crawling in Amazon" so naturally I had to click through. it's actually a flannel moth caterpillar discovered in a Peru rain forest. and apparently it's poisonous, just like its namesake.  

and check out this beauty! he can be found in Australia, on Mount Kaputar. apparently it's an isolated area that houses several "quirks of evolution" like the Kaputar hairy snail and the Kaputar cannibal snail. I think he and the Donald Trump caterpillar would make a cute couple.
