John and I often talk about putting cages around some of our plants to protect the caterpillars. It'll keep out a hungry blue jay, but not a creepy spidah!

The caterpillar ate a ton of food the past few days. I am thinking the growth has sped up, therefore so has the eating. It does look like it's going to shed again very soon. I need to take another photo and post here.
