Emily D. brought in some photos of a caterpillar her father took this summer. This caterpillar sure is strange! It has a green body with black and red spikes and black horns all over it’s body!
Well, I had a hard time identifying this caterpillar, but I finally found out what it was–a ‘hickory horned devil’. The adult is a regal moth or royal walnut moth.
Emily’s photos are much nicer than this one, but I wanted to show you what it looked like!
