Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillar

Battus philenor


A little over an inch in length. Black body with 18 bright orange nubs, two of which protrude from its sides at the segment where its front legs end.


Found in Georgia, United States.


Found toasting on road early in the day. I brought it inside thinking it was dead, but it seems to be drinking water off the table. There is a noticeable lump on its right side that worries me, though.
