Photo of the Week: Donald Trump’s Hair Discovered Vacationing in Peru

While this creature bears a striking resemblance to “The Donald’s” hair, it is actually the four inch larval stage of the Flannel Moth. Much like Mr. Trump’s hair, you definitely wouldn’t want to run your fingers through this caterpillar’s golden locks. What looks like hair is actually hollow venomous spines called setae, eachcapable of inflicting a painful sting. Many people describe this sting as the most intense pain of their life!

Good Luck and Good Light!
