Nature's Grossest: Caterpillars Eat Their Skin!

Nature's Grossest: Caterpillars Eat Their Skin!

Author:

Young naturalists learn early that when butterflies and moths first hatch from an egg, they’re in the form of caterpillars. They probably don’t know that as caterpillars grow, they shed skin, and then eat it. Readers will find this entertaining and accessible look at these ubiquitous larvae exceptionally informative. Carefully chosen photographs support the text and key science vocabulary.
