What a cool caterpillar!
@ martinlThank for sharing me..never know before..but is look so funny without wing.
This will not become a butterfly but a rather plain moth. In some species females never develop wings and look like a fluffy grub, laying eggs over their cocoon and staying nearby as if to guard them. I bred some out and always got females so far. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/799...
@ matinlThank for your information!! and may I ask you what kind of butterfly can be??
my pink moth has the same black band behind its head and molted to reveal that it is a tussock moth. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/783... I suspect yours is similar.
yep this caterpillar is very spicy... makes me itchy just looking at it... excellent photo and spot Uma
@ starIeafI'm not sure and I has no idea about Biology...so many families and spicies!!I'm rather let the one who really know teach me about it..it is better for me..sorry. :)
@ Leuba and Atulthank you for your comment.some time nice thing dangerous too.. :)
Is it similar to this? (http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe...)I've seen such pale tussock moth caterpillars twice, and had been very careful in photographing it.
I've experienced it too ,it is really bad and itchy.....
you have some fascinating creatures Umaporn - great photo !
Yeah... I squashed one on back of my neck once... all neck and face and chest turned to crocodile skin for 3 weeks... had to stay inside to not scare people.Very bad.
@ Argy BeeIf you get those hair on your skin...hooooo..it can be really itchy!!! ;)
