It sorta looks like that Star Trek Episode " The Trouble With Tribbles" Or a rock star with big hair. You captured it very well Ken :wink:

How fascinating! The adult looks like some kind of sphinx moth, but the caterpillar sure gives away the difference!

Looks like one of those little "troll" dolls. Just like the ones that mimi had on her office desk on the Drew Carey show. I think that is the name. Anyway, it sure is cute.

Tribbles, Dragons, Trolls, and Lips...oh my! Amazing how one little caterpillar can raise such a ruckus :lol: Of course all of you are right, with the exception of Dougs "love those lips" thing resulting from Nikolas link. We all know where your mind is at Doug, you old Don Juan you :wink: :lol:

Thanks everyone! :D
