Extraordinary insect found in moth trap. Released on to a small tree, it immediately found a cut-off twig on which it found excellent camouflage.

With its false eyes, It looks like a lizard/crocodile or maybe frogmouth that waits for its prey to approach, but I guess is just avoiding detection by predators, or perhaps trying to frighten them away.
