I found these two bad boys while cutting back a citrus stump yesterday. I love the fact that God made them to look like bird poop for camouflage.
I should have taken pictures yesterday because they are on their way to becoming butterflies and they will not show their osmeterium. It looks like a set of horns that give off a stink. Here is a great website with a video of the caterpillar showing its osmeterium.
Can’t wait to see if these guys cocoon and turn into beautiful giant swallowtails.
