Re: Cecropia cats

Those are called "tubercles" and I suppose their chief function is to frighten birds. On most saturniids, any protusions or spines are harmless and stingless, but the birds and other predators may not know that.

Case was really not far off, when he mentioned the warning/hazard lights.

I thought it's a cat! LOL. I remembered studying caterpillars when I was in college, they are amazing creatures to study.
