46-year-old Luján Eroles was so horrified by the eery sight that she shouted out to her friends, fearing that it might be poisonous.

Eroles said of the creature that measured just 10cm long: “I had never seen anything like it, it was just like a snake and its eyes were so strange.”

The creature had snake-like skin. Eroles decided to take a video of the creature and posted it online to seek advice on what the creature could be. her Facebook post quickly went viral and attracted thousands of comments.

Some speculated that it was a disabled snake, while others thought it to be some kind of a mutant animal. However, many offered a more plausible explanation—that it was a Hawk-Moth Caterpillar that often develops large eye markings and snake-like skin to trick predators that it is bigger than it really is.
