This past Sunday we discovered a this Caterpillar. I happened to look down into the grass when I about stepped on him! I’ve never seen a caterpillar that big before! After some research when we got home; our friend discovered he is actually a Silkmoth Caterpillar. This time of year is when they start to make their cucoon and are in that until next spring! There life span is only 5 days after they come out of their cocoon. The silkmoth is the largest moth in Northern America. I actually took this picture of this silkmoth in June, and only made the connection now.
Never thought you’d get a nature lesson here did ya?
