Maybe this year the Easter Bunny can take the day off and we can celebrate with the Easter Snake instead. Meet Crescent, or in this case “Bunny Crescent”, Canadian DeviantARTist NocturneJewel's leucistic Texas Rat Snake (Pantherophis obsoletus). She’s almost 9 years old, just over 4 feet long, and is probably better suited to hide Easter eggs simply by swallowing them, rather than trying to hide them for the rest of us to find. But we don’t mind.
NocturneJewel had a seamstress friend make this cute pair of bunny ears for Cresent, who apparently didn’t mind wearing them, but only had to do so long enough to take these awesome photos.
All of these caterpillars are camouflaged loopers, likely Synchlora aerata. They look different because the looper makes its own camouflage by gluing flower petals or leaves from its immediate environment onto its back.
From top to bottom, left to right, they appear to be wearing joe-pye weed, marigold, chrysanthemum (uncertain), unknown, wingstem crownbeard, and citrus mint.
