Indian moon moth (Actias selene) caterpillar

Indian moon moth (Actias selene) caterpillar
This is a close up view of the larva's prolegs firmly gripping a Hawthorn twig. These legs really do hold on sturdily, and the caterpillar would sooner have them torn than relax its grip!
Home reared from an egg.
