Masters of Deception: 5 Two-Faced Species

Look at that cute face -looks kind of like Zoidberg, doesn't it? But that's not this insect's face. In fact, it doesn't even have a face quite yet, because this is the pupa form of the skipper butterfly. The eye spots are supposed to scare birds away while the butterfly forms. This is just one of five deceptively-detailed species you can see and read about at National Geographic News. Link -Thanks, Marilyn Terrell!
