The internet is totally obsessed with BBC's Planet Earth II, and it's no wonder -- animals are fascinating!

The Strange Animals Twitter account has been rounding up some of the best odd critters from around the globe and sharing photos since June 2013.

One of the standouts from the account is the stinging rose caterpillar, or parasa indetermina.

The majestic beast can be found in the United States between New York and Florida.

It tricks predators into thinking it has a huge mouth using its wild coloration.
