White-Blotched Heterocampa Caterpillar

White-Blotched Heterocampa Caterpillar

This is the white and green version of this caterpillar. These guys are known to come in some pretty fabulous colors like pink and purple, too. Actually, my neighbor messaged me yesterday afternoon saying she had a bright pink one near her porch – but alas, when I walked down to try to find it, it was gone. Oh well. I had found this guy earlier in the day and was pretty excited with just him. It’s amazing how nature camouflages itself. The decorative white “splotch” on his back is reminiscent of a bird poop. I can see how predators would skip over him. Smart little guy!
