An Insight into the Bizare World of the Processionary Caterpillar

Introducing the processionary caterpillar – A peculiar species found in Australia that displays paradoxical behaviour. These caterpillars follow silk trails to find food, forming groups of up to 200. However, if two follow each other’s trail, they circle aimlessly, leading to confusion. This behaviour, although fascinating, can result in a tangled mess for groups of caterpillars.
