    Can anyone ID this caterpillar? It was photographed on 9/17/05 in the NJ Pine Barrens. It was about 4" long an 1/2" wide. I tried looking online, but there were so many moths and butterflies common to the area.
    there is a pleasure in being mad, which only a madman can enjoy!

    atias luna? i dont know but its in the saturnidea family, its endangered so next time keep it, feed it willow and realise it a day after it becomes a moth, you will be helping the spiecies reproduce and you will be geting a beautifull moth in return

    for pics of the entire family :

    all saturnidea

    OH shoot, I knew it was a bad idea when we used it for fishing bait. Oh well, Bob caught a nice dinner with it.

    Well, either that caterpillar was lost or it must have hitched a ride to NJ with me.
    Bob caught, 160lbs catfish with that little worm.

    Come on guys, stop teasing everyone.
    We used the caterpillar to lure out some Sarracenia purpurea from the weeds, and fed the plants.

    Feed it is an understatement. The purpurea snatched it right out of our fingers. We're lucky we still have all our fingers
