Creation: Jewel caterpillar

A translucent caterpillar that looks like it’s made of glass, on a Red Mangrove tree leaf.

The Jewel caterpillar is about 1.18 inches (3 cm) long.

According to What’s That Bug, Dr. Scott Miller of the Smithsonian Institution says the caterpillar is Acraga coa, and it’ll become this beautiful orange-sherbet colored moth:

Why? It’s the same critter, later stage of its life, same as we change our appearance….

Terry-
I wonder if orange dust would go every where when you smashed the creepy little thing? (like when you smash a brown one) YUCK!!
I would have to agree with you. I HATE moths! So GROSS!

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this beautiful post! The jeweled caterpillar is stunning and the apricot colored moth is gorgeous! God makes such beautiful creatures! I remember Dr. Eowyn that apricot is one of your favorite colors! I will never understand people who have negative comments about such beautiful creation! All beauty comes from God, who is love! Take his gift with thanksgiving, humility and AWE! You need to look within yourself if you think of the word, “creepy” when you see such beauty. Something is wrong with you! Pray for help!
