This particular little guy played possum the morning after we kept him, and thinking he was dead, we went to release him out by the trees. The minute he hit the dirt, he started crawling. So the kids happily carted him around the yard to various places until they got busy doing something else.
And this little guy decided that it would be fun to take his little friend for a ride in Katie's Barbie car. So at least one caterpillar out there has felt the cool breeze of driving in a convertible at 5 mph. How many caterpillars can tell their friends about that??
