To anyone who loves nature from A to Z: this article is the ultimate revelation of some of the most bizarre living things we can find on earth. There is a place in New Hampshire that host crazy-looking caterpillars and let you get close to them.

This place is “The Caterpillar Lab” in Keene, NH. The educational outreach centre showcases the amazing diversity of caterpillars.

Weird and unique little animals full of colours as if they are wearing a costume, like the saddleback caterpillar you can see on this picture.

Also called “Acharia stimulea” (formerly “Sibine stimulea”), this is the larva of a species of moth native to eastern North America.

You can discover creatures looking like a “mimetic micro-vehicle” like this skiff slug caterpillar: the larva of a skiff moth.
