Today was another exciting day of hunting... and Skyping! I had a chance to Skype with Ms. Marquardt's and Ms. Choi's 2nd grade classes. It was a lot of fun.
After that, I had a chance to go out and look for some more caterpillars. When I got out there, we not only found caterpillars, but also a whole assortment of other interesting organisms. Take a look:
Thread Legged Assassin Spider
How cool are they! NATURE ROCKS!!!
By the way, can you find the scientific names for some of these organisms/species?

I'm glad to see some of you are asking questions and learning interesting facts about caterpillars and about New Orleans. I know I am. I didn't know that New Orleans was founded in 1718 by Jean Baptiste La Moyne, but now I do, so thank you everyone.
Nicole, good job on finding the scientific name for the banded sphinx. You are right it is Eumorpha fasciatus. Kayaking was fun, but exhausting. I'm just glad I didn't fall in and El Guapo didn't think I was his dinner!
Victor, I'm glad you like that caterpillar, they are very cute! I like the Banded Sphinx... mostly because they're easier to find. I feel like they are the Godzilla's of the caterpillar world. =)
Franklin, so far I haven't screamed or freaked out... yet. I didn't get a chance to feed El Guapo marshmallows and even if I did, I don't think I would. Would you?
