Milkweed and Monarch Butterfly Mania

Mystery Caterpillar Challenge

You are visiting your Grandpa Bill. He lives in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The two of you bike to the local park for some fishing.
While he parks his bike and gathers the fishing gear, you take a closer look at a flower that is blooming next to the bike rack. You are surprised to see 2 caterpillars. You grab a camera and take a photo. You show the caterpillars to Grandpa Bill. He wonders which kind of caterpillar/butterfly they are.

Develop your caterpillar identifying skills by researching these caterpillars.
