Entometa fervens caterpillar. Notice the two red prongs above her head, and the creases to either side. When threatened, this caterpillars rear up, tuck their head down, and suddenly transform into a fork-tongued snake with great big white eyes with slit black pupils. I nearly dropped the first one of these I found, over here in Perth. Alas, this one apparently didn't feel threatened by me.
