WOW !! These are VERY COOL !! Belated Congrats :)
Wow!! lovely insect.. grt photo..
Thanks Reza. One of my top favorite caterpillars! I was surprised too!
Thanks for the video. I was wondering if they moved along similar to a looper. Great series:)
Thanks so much! You can see from the video what a time I had snapping one photo. It moves fast. HA!
What an interesting caterpillar - a Gymnastics entry in the London Olympics for the Beam, perhaps ? - Fantastic series Carol.
Very nice spotting. It would be nice if you could document its metamorphosis until it turns into a moth.
I did watch but I wasn't sure if it was actually grasping with that area. Thanks!
I believe so... did you see the video. That will answer your question. Thanks! It truly was an amazing caterpillar.
wonderful spotting and series, Carol!
They DO look like they're part of the prolegs, but I'm just not used to seeing a gap between them like this. Truly fascinating!
Carol, was it using the terminal end to grasp and move?
