Caterpillar- In and Out

A caterpillar eating and defecating at the same time!

 

The Lepidopteran (Butterflies and Moths) life cycle is a unique and highly efficient one. The life cycle is divided into two different forms- a caterpillar, and an adult.

 

The caterpillar is an eating machine and all it does is eat, so as to accumulate enough energy to grow into an adult. The adult, on the other hand, is a breeding machine, barely eating and very focused on finding mates to breed before dying.
