Have you ever seen this caterpillar? This guy was feeding on my 6-foot mango tree leaf the other day. I saw the droppings but couldn’t find the source.
When my children and I looked closely then only we saw it! Look at the camouflage. It was a near-perfect.
A sudden itchiness on our skin was straightaway felt. Geli geleman when we observed it closely. Mr Grissom would love to see this larva. It has just emerged from its first cycle of being an egg. Now it was in the second stage before going to the third stage being a pupa (chrysalis). Then only this guy will emerge from the pupa into an imago (butterfly).
Probably this green thing will turn into a handsome imago when its time is ripe. But we’d never see it turning into one, would we? What can I say... I love my mango tree more... so sue me :)
