    Talking Hawk Moth - caterpillar [04-Oct-23 @ AH]

    Rosalind was showing Gan these fat juicy caterpillars which ate up the whole plant. According to Gan, they were probably close to pupal stage. An interesting fact that I learnt today is that they actually went into the soil to pupae. According to Rosalind, the pupua was ugly looking.

    For the record, these fat guys are about four inches long. 6 inches seem to be an overestimate.

    PS: Rosalind, we lost the two caterpillars after they were left on the leaves. Sorry about that.
