  1. Such an amazing case! Doesn't it blow your mind that they get them so perfect?! Posted 3 years ago
    1. I'm especially impressed by the closing mechanism seen here around the head which seems to be tiny particles stuck to some silk or some such and closes neatly over the head when retracted ... should probably make a collage of that. Posted 3 years ago
      1. I was wondering about those particles. That's so fascinating. I don't think I've ever noticed that feature on a bagworm before. Posted 3 years ago
