Helena gum moth caterpillar

Opodiphthera helena


Only 1 week old, these caterpillars hatched from the eggs laid by a Helena gum moth which was in distress and rescued by school children. They're eating several leaves a day, requiring a fresh load of leaves each day.


Gum trees in bush land. These caterpillars are being raised in a glass tank.
