10 Of The Weirdest And Creepiest Arthropods On The Planet

Asp Caterpillar

The Asp Caterpillar is a species of caterpillar that can only be found throughout North America. They look quite harmless, but are actually one of the most toxic caterpillars in the entire continent. The fluffy hairs on their body each have a sharp barb that pierces skin and administers toxin.

Thorn Bug

The Thorn Bug is named as such because of the large pronotum that resembles a horn on the front of their face. These creatures have adapted as such in order to protect themselves from predators, as it works as a defense mechanism and an active camouflage.
