Ever wonder what it would be like to have a giant caterpillar towering over you… you can find out at the Bishop Museum exhibit Backyard Monsters: The World Of Insects going on through September 7. This picture is of the Tomato Caterpillar. It got its name since it like to feed on tomato plant leaves. It will one day cocoon and turn into a Five-Spotted Sphinx Moth also known as a Tomato Sphinx. The exhibit has these giant animatronic displays as well as nine insect display cases and a full set of interactive exhibits where you can learn about insects. More details on the museum tomorrow.
