Caterpillars

Emperor Moth Caterpillar -Bertha

Emperor Moth Caterpillar -Bertha 

When I was up at Sandwich Bay recently they had a load of Emperor Moth Caterpillars from eggs laid in the trap. So Liz and I each brought two home. This is what I hope is a female as she is big enough to eat the other one in one gulp nearly..lol

They are probably at final instar and will pupate sometime soon, then need to be refrigerated for the winter. Brought back out around end of Feburary or begining of March and will hopefully emerge in April.
