Before And After Photos Of 20 Different Caterpillar Transformations

October 27, 2014

It's really interesting how only a few of the larvae forms actually end up looking like the adult. When caterpillars metamorphose into moths/butterflies, their bodies actually break apart and rearrange at the cellular level. If you break open a cocoon/chrysalis midway through metamorphosis, you'll find a blob of goo.
