Hooly dooly – I don’t know what moth these caterpillars belong to, but they are about 9 cm (3.5 inches) long and as thick as my thumb. The grapes are just about finished and the vines beginning to lose their leaves – aided by these guys.
On a more delicate subject, the looper moth (Pingasa chlora?) below was in my bathroom. These moths are called ‘looper’ because their caterpillars curl their bodies into a loop to move along a twig.
