Gulf Fritillary Caterpillar


This is a beautiful bright orange caterpillar with black spikes.


Southern United States, Mexico, most parts of South America, and the Caribbean.


Though the spines look menacing, they are soft and don't sting. If those spines don't scare away predators, the Passion Flower butterfly larvae are poisonous if eaten.
