Giant Swallowtail Caterpillar
This caterpillar is 1-1/2″ to 2″ long when mature and has a blotchy brown-and-white pattern. It looks remarkably like a bird dropping throughout its larval stages. These caterpillars feed primarily on citrus and are called “orange dogs” because they are commonly found in orange groves. View the giant swallowtail butterfly here!
