Fun Fact

Many caterpillars spin their cocoons in concealed locations, such as the underside of leaves, at the base of a tree, or hanging from a small branch. They also attach small twigs or pieces of vegetation to the outside of their cocoon to hide it from predators. How would you camouflage your cocoon to keep safe?
