LONDON: In a nature factory, many insects, moths, and creatures use a variety of tactics to protect themselves, and the pink-underwing moth (caterpillar) shrinks its body at the sight of a predator and enlarges its face. In this way, his eyes look bigger and clearer and his facial features look like big teeth.
The rare pink underwing moth is found in the United Kingdom, Queensland, and New Guinea. It eats rotten fruit and has pink stripes under its feathers. Because of its color, many predators can drip resin on it. But the worm is brown in the beginning. When it grows up, two big dark spots appear on his face. And bright yellow stripes appear. Large spots look like scary eyes and two rows of white stripes look like pointed teeth.
This insect is also called a large-headed caterpillar. But this is not his real head, but he stretches his head in times of danger. Its head is shaped like a skull and the big eyes look like horrible teeth. It is said that the big insect or animal that makes it bite in this way, gets scared and retreats.
This is a perfect example of self-preservation in nature. We have seen leafy insects, snake-faced caterpillars, and other similar animals in a natural way before. With this little tactic, the worm puts intense pressure on the other creature and uses this defence mechanism to protect themselves.
Just by looking at it, it looks terrifying, even as a human we wouldn’t even dare to go near such a creature if we ever find it.
