With a vibrant yellow hue paired with a sweet pink tone, it really made me say, "ooooooh!" Nature offers so much beauty and variety. I personally have never seen this little creature in real life, but it would be such an incredible spotting. According to some light research online, I learned that the caterpillars live and feed in small groups while they are very young. The older caterpillars then become solitary and pupate underground.
The adult moths are nocturnal! While the caterpillars feed on many maple tree types and can become a defoliating pest, the adult moths do not eat. That is wild! Their colorings can vary from mostly white with pink edges to vibrant pink and yellow patterning.
