Brown with tan belly, yellow markings (Yellow-striped armyworm)
by Mrs. Cameron
Our caterpillar was found outside cold and not moving by our kindergarten children on our child care center playground in New Hampshire. He is approximately 1.5 inches long; mostly brown with a tan underside and yellow markings towards his end and sides.
We're curious what type of caterpillar he is; how to best care for him for the winter (temperature, food, habitat); and if he'll become a butterfly or moth.
