What is a yellow, black striped caterpillar?


Answer by  Dave77 (14)

This is the second stage in the life of a Monarch butterfly. Initially, the Monarch butterfly will begin life as a small, off-white, thin-shelled egg with ridges. The second stage will be the yellow and black-striped caterpillar. Then the caterpillar will hang upside down as it pupates in a smooth, mummy-like green casing before becoming a butterfly.
