Artist's Description

This is the caterpillar of the Lime Butterfly. It’s black at first (what you see) and soon after it will turn green.

This is from a tree in my neighbourhood – my brother spotted the tree and I spotted the caterpillar. =)

It stays black for about a week or so, then turns green – which I will show post really soon.


I love the lime butterfly – it is a bug that has grown up with my entire family.

We used to rear this bugs in a leaky aquarium that we affectionately termed our caterpilarium =P

So far we’ve reared over 200 successful lime butterflies. This success was mainly due to my high school years when I’d go to school and pick 100s of caterpillars from my school’s garden – I had made friends with my school teachers, and I told her I was helping her get rid of the pests – she was very grateful, but little did she know that I was taking many of the leaves to feed them too =P Haha!

I hope you like these!
