|It really is an inch!|
|A closer look|
The inchworm became our focus this week. Not knowing much about the inchworm, we conducted some research.
What we found:
- Inchworms move by "looping" their bodies from back to front.
- They have three pairs of legs in the front, two pairs of prolegs (appendages) at the back.
- To protect themselves, inchworms make themselves look like twigs or foliage.
- They eat foliage and fruit.
- Inchworms have a similar life cycle as the caterpillar. An inchworm will make a pupa and metamorphose into a moth.
