A Brown Caterpillar with a Big Head

A while back, we received some pictures of a very interesting worm (or what the reader called a “worm”) from a reader. We’ve been eager to look into the creature because its appearance is so unique: the “worm” is brown with a big head (or rather a huge head), and on this large head are two dots that look like eyes. The reader asked what kind of worm he had found, but we don’t think he found a worm. It looks more like a caterpillar, albeit a very strange looking caterpillar, one that we have never seen before. So the question is: what kind of brown caterpillar did our reader find?
