Puss Moth Caterpillar: if the caterpillar is touched anywhere on its body, it will instantly turn its “face” directly towards the attacker. Touch it somewhere else, and the head follows you, like a Mona Lisa from hell. And if that doesn’t work, it can always spray out a mist of formic acid from the two horns on its back.
