Caterpillar Survival Story

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man’s determination. -Tommy Lasorda

well in this case, you may replace ‘man’ with ‘Caterpillar’. This is the most interesting story of determination and survival. You must have heard about Cuckoo and Crow story, how Cuckoo fools Crow by keeping their eggs in Crow’s nest, this is the similar story. Caterpillar are carried by worker ants who assume it to be one of its own and feed them till the day  Caterpillar becomes butterfly. These Butterflies are of the Maculinea species of large blue butterflies found across Europe and Asia. what happens exactly is that, Maculinea species take advantage of the ants acoustic signalling system. They mimic the sound made by the queen ant larvae to fool them and thus get all the special treatment by the worker ants.

Carpenter Ants

Speaking of Ants, you should know about this one strange ant who explodes on being attacked, spilling Toxins.
