Maybe the little prongs are like defense at the close-range level -
it's camouflaged from a distance, then if you get close enough to eat it,
you see those plastic-y things, like you say, Bill.  This would be 
interesting to test.

(I'm not going to eat one.  My palate is not refined enough :).  Although
I did find out last night that a friend tastes toxic butterflies to see if
they're bad.)
