10 Insects That Look Like They’re From An Alien Planet
Unbelievably, there are around one million different types of insects currently on this planet, which is a horrible thing to learn for those who are terrified of the little critters. The insect population currently accounts for over half of all the living creatures on this planet, including people. Some of those, obviously, are going to be a bit on the strange side. These insects have evolved internally, but the external is what interests us the most right now. They are truly alien in appearance. Here are ten insects we swear come from an alien planet.
Puss Moth Caterpillar
The Puss Moth Caterpillar is filled with protein, and has a really squishy body. They are vulnerable to predators, though, but they resort to scare tactics when trying to avoid being eaten. They can change their appearance to look like something more dangerous.
Devil’s Flower Mantis
The Devil’s Flower Mantis is the largest species of praying mantis, and also the strangest of all. Females can grow up to 5 inches in length, and have colors that are similar to the orchid that they receive their name from.
