The caterpillar of the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly is an interesting fellow because it feeds on plants of the Pipevine family that are poisonous to most other insects and animals. This caterpillar not only eats the plant without being
harmed but also stores its poison inside and becomes poisonous itself the more it eats. Fully grown caterpillars are about two inches long and black with red spines.
Not an adult yet but positively poisonous looking!
