Eudocima phalonia is also known as the common fruit-piercing moth, in its caterpillar stage it looks like a galaxy.

When faced with danger, it tucks its head underneath, revealing eye-like markings. Simultaneously, it raises its tail. Depending on its position, you might even observe a face-like appearance, complete with a crooked mouth, where the actual legs are pressed against the second segment of its abdomen.
