Yup, very pretty & looks fierce also. Look at the pair of blue eyes, very scary lol.

scare it will 'burn' its body. :lol:/>

Never like butterfly's or moth's caterpillars at all till I spotted this beautiful
& fat piece !! Spotted it when cutting some branches & leaves.

My niece & nephew decided to keep it and records the life cycle as my nephew will soon
be learning it next year for P3 Science.

Good for them ;i did that in my primary school days.Back then caterpillars were common;I kept watch on our custard apple tree and noted the green caterpillars the.
Months ago, I saw some ?moth caterpillars - black and yellow with a row of red dots on them living on red ixora bushes.A few days later; they have changed with long bright yellow hairs .Later all that was left on the bush were tufts of yellow hair.
