Awesome jeweled caterpillar becomes even more awesome moth
If you’re not floored by the fact that the orange moth on the right literally started its life with the body of the even more bizarre caterpillar on the left, then you’re a lost cause for Science.
The moth/caterpillar is the species Acraga coa. It’s from the family Dalceridae, and a google image search shows just how cool all of its cousins look. In fact, I might just post a few more pictures later…

Synsepalum dulcificum, also known as the miracle fruit, is a plant with a berry that, when eaten, causes sour foods (such as lemons and limes) subsequently consumed to taste sweet. This effect is due to miraculin, which is used commercially as a sugarsubstitute.
The berry itself has a low sugar content and a mildly sweet tang. It contains a glycoprotein molecule, with some trailing carbohydrate chains, called miraculin. When the fleshy part of the fruit is eaten, this molecule binds to the tongue’s taste buds, causing sour foods to taste sweet.
Miraculin works by binding to sweet receptors on the taste buds. At neutral pH, miraculin binds and blocks the receptors, but at low pH (resulting from ingestion of sour foods) miraculin binds protons and becomes able to activate the sweet receptors, resulting in the perception of sweet taste. This effect lasts until the protein is washed away by saliva (up to about 60 minutes). | source
