Hawkmoth caterpillar (Sphingidae family) from the rainforest of Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia.

Even the most innocent animals and insects like this caterpillar have built-in camouflage and can change shape to deter predators.

Usually, the camouflage is used to become blend in the environment but sometimes, it become much more deceptive!

This harmless caterpillar has evolved the amazing ability to inflate its head when disturbed and mimic a snake head with black eyespots and even light reflections to keep safe from potential predators such as lizards or birds.
