    Caterpillars have adorable, squishy prolegs! Like other insects, they have six true legs on their thorax, but they also have pudgy prolegs on their abdomens. It’s their prolegs that are important for locomotion. While caterpillars have muscles, they don’t have skeletons to help them contract those muscles. So, how do they use their muscles? They attach their bodies to a hard surface, such as a twig, using their prolegs! Their prolegs act like anchors that hold the caterpillar in place, thus giving them the stability to contract their muscles and move. So cool! {Pandora sphinx (Eumorpha pandorus) spotted in Pennsylvania, USA by FrannySopranny} #Pandorasphinx #Eumorphapandorus
