The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Leave a comment

Whilst tending to the grounds today, Mr Young came across this rather large caterpillar. It is an elephant hawk-moth caterpillar which is one of the largest caterpillars found in the British Isles. The species is named after its resemblance to an elephant’s trunk. Eventually, it will turn into a beautiful elephant hawk-moth as shown below. Have a look at this fascinating video, too!
