It seems that everywhere we look we see butterflies and moths, but we never seem to think about where they came from. This mission dives into the wonderful world of caterpillars. Caterpillars are all around us, and come in a variety of beautiful shapes, sizes, and colours. Every caterpillar is unique in its own way, and now is your chance to showcase the incredible diversity of caterpillars in Eastern North America.
