WEFOUNDHow Do Caterpillars Become Butterflies? Tell Me Why, Tell Me How


Atlas moths (Attacus atlas) are the biggest moths in the world. The caterpillars of such species feed hungrily on the plants of genus citrus (family of Rutaceae). Basically, they like to eat leaves of those plants that are evergreen (plants that give leaves in every season).

From the family of Uraniidae, a dazzling and nice-looking moth is called Madagascan sunset moth. The caterpillars of these moths prey on ground tissues of plant leaves called Parenchyma. This tissue exists on spongy portions of leaves, right into its veins. But after having this meal for about 4 days, they change their food and start feeding on fruits, petioles, flowers, tendrils and the like.

The caterpillars of Grease moths feed heavily on grains (dry) like whole wheat flour, corns, granola, oats and graham flour.

The caterpillar stage for Monarchs lasts around 2 weeks. Caterpillars need to eat much to gain fat supplies that support them during the pupa stage, which is approximately as long as the caterpillar stage. The mature butterfly emerges from the pupa in several hours.

Caterpillars / ˈ k æ t ər ˌ p ɪ l ər / are the larval stage of members of the order Lepidoptera (the insect order comprising butterflies and moths ).

As with most common names, the application of the word is arbitrary and the larvae of sawflies commonly are called caterpillars as well. [1] [2] Both lepidopteran and symphytan larvae have eruciform body shapes.

Caterpillars of most species are herbivorous , but not all; some (about 1%) are insectivorous , even cannibalistic. Some feed on other animal products; for example clothes moths feed on wool, and horn moths feed on the hooves and horns of dead ungulates .
