A woman from Santa Fe in Argentina threw the whole world into a guessing frenzy, when she posted a video of a strange creature she found in her backyard. Luján Eroles was walking in her yard when she spotted the four inches long creature on the pavement. It had a rough skin like a snake and looked like it had head on both ends of its long body.

While she thinks that it was some sort of mutant, many who saw the footage think that the strange critter might be an Elephant Hawk-Moth Caterpillar, known for their curved spines.

The Elephant Hawk-Moth Caterpillar is called so because they resemble elephant trunks. They can be found in a wide range of habitats, both in the open and in your own garden. The insects have two large “eye-markings” on the backs of their heads to trick predators into thinking they are larger than the appear, able to grow more that 3 inches in length.

She was so thrown by the encounter, she thought it was some sort of a strange snake, fearing it might be poisonous. Over 3000 people have commented on the video she posted online, each with their own theory of the creature's origin.

Please share this video with your family and friends as it will surely interest them!

      i am near the point of trying to explain that to people. "unless the snake was dipped in arsenic, it is NOT a poisonous snake"

    It's a caterpillar. I think the person who took this video knows that. Interesting enough for 3 Giggles, but because of the dishonest click bait, I have to take two points, and One Point on the Giggle Awards Scale is awarded here.

      Ok, it's mot even 8 in the morning, and I haven't finished my first coffee. I restore the 2 points for a total of 3 Giggles on the Giggles Scale. Simon Cowell sends his apologies.

    I suspect you have a larvae of a butterfly. We have a similar ugly caterpillar we nickname the "Orange Dog" See below: This is the caterpillar of a beautiful butterfly, the Giant Swallowtail. The caterpillar is commonly called an Orange Dog and it mimics bird droppings to avoid getting eaten. The caterpillar will eat some leaves, but will do no lasting harm to your tree. You should not spray your tree because of the Orange Dog. The Orange Dog is not harmful to humans, but if you provoke it, you will be treated to seeing the osmetrium emerge. The osmetrium is a scent organ resembling two orange horns and it gives off an odor to repel its attacker.

    At first I thought it was a snake that got injured but now agree it's a caterpillar. Chris https://www.lemonchecks.com
