A caterpillar is the larva form of a lepidopteran (a member of the insect order comprising butterflies and moths).
Caterpillars have long segmented bodies and many sets of "legs".
They eat leaves voraciously, grow rapidly, shed their skins generally four or five times, and eventually pupate into an adult form.
