Caterpillars are so amazing. It’s crazy to think that these beautiful/cute/scary creatures begin their lives in one body and then morph into a completely new one! Can you imagine having that happen to YOU? It must be a lot of hard work switching bodies… I would be way too lazy to even try.

My favorite of the ones above is the Sphinx moth caterpillar. It’s so cool how it mimics a snake (I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference)!

Which one do you like the best?
