OT: Stinging Caterpillar

  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] OT: Stinging Caterpillar

A while back I posted pics of a caterpillar that had stung me.  Well, I kept  
it and another one that I found.  Fascinated by them, I wanted to see 
life-cycle.  I thought one had died, cause I saw a shriveled tuft of white 
at the bottom of the container.  I then noticed it was now grey, 
and was kinda scrunched up, i thougt it was turning into a cacoon, it had 
dropped its white spines.  The next day it was crawling around eating 
I noticed stripes of orange and beige, so I snapped these pics.  I'd say it 
can still sting, I'm sure not gonna touch it :).  I just checked them and 
they are both now grey with the same stripes.  Thought I'd give you all 
something else to watch out for while your deviding and cleaning up 
your iris.
