    Razib, did the cat eat it..???

    nope

    Probably a wise choice. The insect is arguably aposematic. I wonder if it’s a beetle, butterfly, or moth. It kind of looks like some kind of swallowtail butterfly, but I think the lack of a visible head fits that very poorly.

    At first I thought the cat was contemplating snatching at its tail. Then I saw the grub/caterpillar. It looks a lot like some sort of beetle grub but it could be a caterpillar of a form alien to me. (I’m a life-long student of natural history but my special interest is vertebrates in general and birds in specific.)

    I just think the view of a kitty’s head from above is excessively adorable.

  • April Brown

    She looks exactly like my kitty when I was in college – still miss her.
