Eastern tent caterpillars playing a nightmarish game of follow-the-leader:
Tent caterpillars are one of our favorite springtime species here at The Caterpillar Lab, but sometimes we just wish they would take better care of themselves for us!
Somehow this group of caterpillars got stuck following each other around in an endless loop - we had to step in and rescue them by breaking a twig and pointing them towards home... This really shouldn't be in the job description guys ;)
