Can anyone tell me which caterpillar this is? Its body looks black and it has hairs that are white and black, with a little bit of brown.
It was on a utensil which was kept in a dark place. I watched it come out from the cocoon on the left after my mother poured water on it, then it tried to climb the walls of the utensil.
I live in Punjab in the northern part of India, which is in Asia. It was about 5cm long but i couldn't measure the actual length. Now it is gone.
But i will try to find another one of these around my home. If i can i will put a picture of it on this site.
And it came out of cocoon so is it even a caterpillar? I think caterpillars make cocoons to become moths and butterflies.
