BRENDA IN MEXICO WITH CATERPILLARS ON TREE - NATURE AT ITS BEST
At Panto-Ha Resort in Xul-Ha I had the pleasure of seeing giant caterpillars on a tree trunk. They seem to just be grouped together there but in reality they must be sucking at the tree for every five seconds or so one of them would excrete and the little bulb-like formations of excrement would fall to the foot of the tree were they heaped up.
I have no idea what the butterfies look like that come from these huge caterpillars but I guess they must be really pretty. I will have to ask my friend, Greg Itzab who is Science teacher at CCC and CCC ACE.He may be able to tell me more about these caterpillars that were as long as three inches.
It is definitely NATURE AT ITS BEST!
