Apologies to Eric Carle, but I couldn’t resist the title.  Three of my students brought in one of the coolest caterpillars I’ve ever seen yesterday.  Take a look:

The Biggest Caterpillar I've Ever Seen

I was so proud they brought it to me for help with identification.  We used our butterfly guide, as well as a great website, http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?guide=Caterpillars As far as we could tell, it’s a purple horned devil caterpillar.

If you have suggestions or ideas regarding this caterpillar, the class would love to hear from you!  Just drop me an email at lousethelibrarian001@yahoo.com.  Or, of course, post a comment here.
