Lots of caterpillars have snake camo, just search on "caterpillar snake head".

I appreciate the information. I believe  biologists of city at Argentina fled from the school.
I still prefer not meet personally these worms...

the key thing (apart from checking out still waters link) is to look at the shape and the legs. see those knobbly bits on the underside? those are the legs, and they are definitely the legs of a caterpillar.

i still think the "horrifying" description isn't fair. they're adorable!
