Attenborough’s caterpillar


Sir David Attenborough spoke of the caterpillar that lives 14 years in frozen solid form, during which it gradually accumulates enough food that by the end of 14 years it finally turns into a moth. Amazing indeed.

It is called the woolly bear caterpillar, or Pyrrharctia isabella.
