Prepupal Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar

Dear Angela,
The last time we posted an image of a prepupal Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar, the posting got 37 Facebook “likes” and we hope your posting can beat that.  When they are still growing and feeding, Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillars are green to blend in with the leaves.  When pupation time approaches, many individuals turn brown or orange.
