A caterpillar has been found that bears a striking resemblance to comic book hero Iron Man.
This latest crusader could be rivalling Tony Stark for our attention in no time after he was spotted out and about clinging to a twig.
The pic was then uploaded on photo sharing site imgur.com by user steamdino and has promoted a huge response from superhero fans across the land.
One said: “I thought it was a green ninja in the thumb nail” while another was a little more afraid of the little guy: “I found one on my porch the other day *shudder*.”
One even suggested that this could be the latest reincarnation of the Stark Industries super suit: “Iron Man – now available in forest green!”
Could this be the start of a new breed of insect super race? Only time will tell.
