The Real Caterpie by ZBot9000 The Real Caterpie by ZBot9000
After a hike in the woods, getting lost, getting mauled by a pointy stick, and finding an old high school photo of George Lucas... :XD: (jk) I discovered this little guy stuck to my jacket after I got out of the woods! :aww:

This is a Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar. Which happens to be the state to-be-butterfly of Mississippi! And it's also the caterpillar that the Pokemon Caterpie is based off of. Cool huh? :D Oooorrrrr maybe it's a Tiger Swallowtail... Wutevs. :T

This pic surprised me with how much detail my camera actually captured. :wow: My camera is choosy about what pics come out the way they are supposed to. Surprisingly I got a bunch of these rare detailed pics from my camera all while at Mississippi Palisades. =D And I mean DETAILED! Wait until you see them. And I did not use a tripod or zoom for any of them (including this one) which is even more surprising! :aww:

That's actually a Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar. Spicebush Swallowtails have bigger eyespots. Regardless, it still looks a LOT like Caterpie. When they pupate, their chrysalis looks like Metapod (without the eyes), but among emerging the adult butterflies look more like Beautifly than Butterfree! (I see a LOT of Tiger Swallowtail butterflies during the summer, and they're HUGE.)

Well, the Spicebush Swallowtail looks the most like Caterpie, but I think Caterpie was based off just about any kind of swallowtail caterpillar with those eyespots. And it sticks out those red stench-thingies more than the Spicebush does.
