A handsome Walnut Sphinx caterpillar on pecan, found in Lockhart this week. Did you know, they squeak when handled to scare off predators? Be on the lookout for large caterpillars hunting for the perfect spot to pupate. Sphinx moths make dirt cocoons underground! #lockharttx #caldwellcountytx #caterpillar #walnutsphinxmoth
