Tropical green caterpillar - Series #2

This is the second series on caterpillar, i.e tropical green caterpillar. The black spot on the right looks like an eye but it's fake to trick predator. The fake eyes look intimidating to fend of predator and the caterpillar head is actually tiny.


Cropped photo. Caterpillar photo taken with flash.



Uncropped photo. The caterpillar photo is not so sharp due to poor lighting. It's was late in the afternoon.

Tropical big green leave cutter caterpillar

Tropical big green leave cutter caterpillar. I'm not sure which end of the caterpillar is the head or the tail. The end with the spike or horn might be the head and the spots at the tail is the fake eyes to trick predator.

After the photo of the caterpillar was taken, the caterpillar was unceremoniously cut into two by my mum because it was destroying her crop (yam ~ dioscorea).

Green tropical bugs mating

This post showcases two unidentified green bugs mating. Yet another privacy invasion by me. :)

The bugs in this scandal could be a family of grasshopper + stick insect + mosquito. I think it one of those fruit fly.

Artists and designers behind the movie production of StarShip Troopers in 1997 probably got their ideas on beetles and weevils for their movie characters. See sampling below:
