qotd, I'd take it
many things make a post


There is a good book I read on butterflies, but like you said, the mystery is better. Plus there's just too much frass in the book. :)

Heeee. "frass."

The caterpillar totally dissolves and the goo re-forms as a butterfly. There are no recognizable body parts during the goo stage. Weird. (I believe I read that in Robert Michael Pyle's "A Handbook for Butterfly Watchers", which is a great book, btw.)

What also surprised me back in my caterpillar-in-a-jar-on-the-counter days was the amount of poop a monarch caterpillar can produce in a day.
