Matador and the Monarch

The weirdest thing to me about monarch caterpillars -- I mean, caterpillars in general, to some degree -- is that their whole faces just come off. Just, pop. No more face. You can sometimes find their faces just hanging out. Of course I guess that's far less curious than the fact they eventually stiffen up in a transmogrifier pod and literally transform into an entirely different creature.
