Lujan Eroles, a 46-year-old resident of Santa Fe, Argentina, shared her remarkable encounter with a creature that left her so startled that she couldn’t help but scream, causing concerned neighbors to rush to her aid.
Describing the creature, she exclaimed, “It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. It had the appearance of a snake, but its eyes were quite unusual. I was concerned that it could be poisonous.
The footage captured by Eroles displays a creature with a distinct coloration resembling that of a snake, measuring a mere 10 centimeters (3.94 inches ) in length. After the video was shared online, there was a lot of speculation about what species it could be.
This creature seems to be a caterpillar from a moth species that is uncommonly found in Central America. The caterpillar cleverly disguises itself as a snake to ward off any potential threats, since it lacks natural defenses.
