I would like you all to meet my new pet, Woolton! He's a Woolly Bear Caterpillar, in case you couldn't tell. :) I'm keeping him in an old, dry aquarium filled with grass and twigs and stuff, outside. He's becoming rather grouchy and sleepy, because it's almost time to start hibernating. He'll hibernate until spring, when he will become a Isabella Tiger Moth!
Yesterday he was very active, but now I think he's too sleepy. He seemed to be protesting when I had to pick him up for pictures. :) He's hardly moved all day. At first I thought he had died, but no. I saw him move a little at least. *Whew!*
I love this picture below! Just look at his spikes and his tiny suction cup feet!
P.S. I appologize if any of you are of the sqeamish sort. :)
