Key Stage 2
ID these butterfly caterpillars.
Keep your eyes peeled for wriggly caterpillars scoffing leaves.
- Lots of caterpillars are green – perfect camouflage against predators like birds
- Caterpillars are fussy eaters – they’ll only munch on their favourite plants
- All caterpillars go through stages as they grow. These are called instars
Some caterpillars are very tiny, so you’ll need to look carefully.
