The Garden Tiger Moth Caterpillar, often called a wooly bear due to its very fuzzy appearance, are the larvae of the Garden Tiger Moth. They are toxic and, as a result, are rarely eaten by predators. In order to achieve their toxic protection, they consume host plants, such as fox glove, and process the plant's defensive toxins into their own. As moths, they will display warnings to denote they are toxic after consumption of such plants and adults are capable of spraying an irritating compound at perceived threats. While both Tiger Moth caterpillars and moths are absolutely beautiful, they are best observed from a distance.
Photographic print available in multiple sizes and matting options. Each print is matted by hand and comes in a protective sleeve.
Please note that the available sizes listed are that of the print itself. If you are planning to frame matted prints, plan for a frame that fits one size larger than the listed print size (The 5x7 print, matted, will fit a frame made to hold an 8x10 piece and so on.)
