Q: In Need of Inspiration in Tampa and Surrounding Areas

A: Do you know?

After having kept this saddleback caterpillar in captivity for one week, I was startled to find that - over the course of just two hours - dozens of parasitic wasp pupae had ruptured through its exoskeleton.

Talk about having a bad day...

This is not the same caterpillar I posted earlier - that one is still healthy.

In the story Insect Macros.
