Found this Cecropia caterpillar in our front garden. It's huge! And gonna get bigger, will be around 4 inches long when it's full grown in this stage.
We thought we'd feed it and watch it turn into the cocoon and come out a moth.
This is what moth it would grow into:
It will have between a 4 and 5 inch wing span. Wow!
Read more and found out it stays in its cocoon alllllll winter...dang,
it's back in the woods.
