A woman was working in her garden when she found a strange creature and called her friends over to see it. It was a snake with a head on either end of it’s body. One is not clearly a head but it has an eye that is apparently blinking. The woman, Luján Eroles, 46, who lives in Santa Fe, Argentina said the creature is only about four inches long and has skin like a snake.
‘I had never seen anything like it, it was just like a snake and its eyes were so strange.’
‘I looked down and I encountered the strange animal, fear struck me knowing that it could have been poisonous’.
‘We all thought it was a mutant animal, which is why we filmed it and put it online for people to give us their opinions.’
From The Mail Online:
‘One thing for sure it’s not a caterpillar because it has no legs’, he said.
‘This may be the head of a viper’, commented another Facebook user, Fernando Garcia.
‘A disabled snake. He better not go into the woods’, said Cheryl Bagley, who was among the 3,000 people who commented on Ms Eroles’ post.
Many have suggested that the creature is an Elephant Hawk-Moth Caterpillar, known for their horn-like curved spines.
Hawk-Moth Caterpillars can be found in a range of habitats, including open countryside, woodlands and city gardens.
It has two large ‘eye-markings’ behind the head which tricks predators into thinking it’s bigger than it is.
