Caterpillar or snake?
Scientific name: Deilephila elpenor
Habitat: Europe, Asia
Even if the caterpillars of the elephant hawk-moth only reach 3.1 inch (8 cm) in length: it’s still scary if you see one in the grass right next to you. At first glance, you might think it was a venomous snake! Its brown camouflage and threatening eye markings make it look pretty similar to a snake.
