Woolly bear caterpillars use clever tricks to stay alive

While caterpillars have inspired many contests and festivals, “they don’t predict the weather,” says Joe Boggs. Boggs is an assistant professor at Ohio State Extension and an educator in the university’s entomology department. Last fall, Boggs randomly collected a group of woolly bears from a botanical area in Ohio. Although the caterpillars were similar in size, indicating they were of the same age, they had different amounts of browning. If such signs were indeed predicting the weather, “you would think all woolly bears would look pretty much the same,” says Boggs.
