Video Title:
Black Swallowtail Caterpillar defense mechanism
Description:
The caterpillar in this video will become a Black Swallowtail Butterfly. The projections from the caterpillar's head are forked glands called osmeterium. When the caterpillar believes it is in danger it will release these glands and emit a foul odor to repel predators. (Don't worry! No caterpillars were harmed in the making of this video.)
