introducing: hubbard’s silk moth!

hi every body!

look what i found today!…

hubbard's silk moth caterpillar

the spines shimmer like platinum in the sun! it’s the hubbard’s silk moth caterpillar. i’m not home now, but i do have a picture of an adult moth that we lucked out to find on our fantastic bug night! (more here, too) on my pc at home. will post tomorrow.

the caterpillar’s body was fuschia and he had shimmery plates of silver. his head, tail and underbelly were a crayola type green.

i’m psyched with my find. i think it’s rare to find caterpillars in a world where we seldom look to the leaves. or in this case on the ground hiding in seed pods.

still enjoying housesitting. got their laptop to work a bit! loving animal planet’s mini marathon of animal cops and the dogs are all getting along so well.

night night.

That’s not a bug; that’s some creature from outer space!!!
