18 Amazing Caterpillar Transformations

 Both butterflies and moths have four stages of life – they go from the initial egg to a caterpillar, then to a cocoon and finally to a butterfly or moth.

In these 18 pictures, you’ll see the transformation, and decide for yourself if you prefer the caterpillar or the butterfly/moth…
