Belize is  nestled along the second largest barrier reef (200 miles / 322 km).

Snake caterpillar

The snake-like caterpillar grows into the moth Hemeroplanes triptolemus.

Its chest and wings are covered in scales and the moth feeds on nectar.

The sizeable creatures only live for between 10 and 30 days and can be found in Costa Rica, Belize Mexico and Guatemala.

In larval form, the species looks like a snake and even mimics its behaviour as it can harmlessly strike at potential predators.
