In Case You Had Forgotten, Donald Trump's Hairpiece Found Living in the Amazon Rainforest




The US presidential elections have hotted up in recent weeks with the ever-satorized battle feeling like it's been going on for years, and there are still a fair few weeks to go.





If it's all got a bit too much for you, let's take a moment to remember the flannel moth caterpillar (Megalopyge opercularis) – better known as the caterpillar that looks like Donald Trump’s hair/wig.



The so-called “Trumpapillar” is a keen patron of diversity, known to occur in many colors, from red to pink to white to yellow. They can be found in the south-east of the US, South America, and – ironically – Mexico.


This one was snapped by wildlife photographer Jeff Cremer in the Peruvian Amazon. Jeff also pulled out his 5x Macro lens on the specimen to examine it up close.


To the normal observer, it might look like a harmless and appealing creature. But on deeper inspection, it turns out to be rather venomous and capable of causing a fair amount of irritation. As you can see in the video below, that silky hair is actually covered in microscopic barbs. Those velcro-like barbs are connected to cells, which produce irritating chemicals. So, although its venom won't kill you, it's best to stay away from this guy.
