ROFL, 'Donald Trump moth' found in Amazon rainforest

Remind you of anything? The caterpillar that looks just like property mogul Donald Trump

'Donald Trump moth' found in Amazon rainforest
The moth's hair, or spines, are venomous and can cause severe skin irritations

By Victoria Woollaston

There's no denying Donald Trump is a big wig - but researchers have photographed a caterpillar that bears an uncanny resemblance to the property mogul's hair.

With its brightly coloured, carefully parted 'do' the bizarre looking caterpillar has been compared to the U.S property mogul's unique look.



The creature was spotted in the Amazon by friends Jeff Cremer, 34 and Phil Torres, 27, who run photography tours from Posada Amazonas, a 30 bed rainforest lodge in Peru.

3. If it's a typical caterpillar

It's all mouth and consumes everything around it. The fact that this one is poisonous to all creatures around it just adds to the propriety of its name.

This is the most appropriately named critter I've ever seen.

7. Well that does describe the donald to a tee

"It's all mouth and consumes everything around it. The fact that this one is poisonous to all creatures around it just adds to the propriety of its name." I do agree on the name being appropriate

18. Barrump bump! Superb comment, Warpy!!!

Man - that IS a perfect fit, isn't it! The Donald Trump moth caterpillar!

"If it's a typical caterpillar, it's all mouth and consumes everything around it. The fact that this one is poisonous to all creatures around it just adds to the propriety of its name."

But the caterpillar's hair moves better.

6. "venomous and can cause severe skin irritations "

Does that refer to the moth or Trump?

8. Both - but the moth no doubt serves a purpose in nature.

This can't be real. Is Nature so grotesque that it would allow something like this to evolve?

The caterpillar, I mean, not...well.
