Fort Howard Park: Hyalophora Cecropia Caterpillar
As summer comes to a close, and crisp fall air brings out the hoodies, the family and I have been trying to soak up every last ounce of time outside. During one of our family adventures at Fort Howard Park, we came across this not-so-little guy. After consulting some friends, and the great wise owl known as Google, we determined that he is a hyalophora cecropia caterpillar. Not only is he an incredibly interesting looking caterpillar, but he will grow into the most amazing looking moth. I sure hope to see one in a few weeks!
He also made a tasty snack.
Okay, not really. *no caterpillars were harmed in the making of this post*
