Caterpillars are insects that appear in the The Lion Guard universe. They live in both the Pride Lands and the Outlands.


In the Real World 

Caterpillars come in many different colors, shapes, and sizes.

Caterpillars are bugs with red eyes, green skin with dark green lines and spots over their bodies, ten red legs, and dark green antenna.

Caterpillars undergo metamorphosis in order to reach adulthood. After they hatched out of their eggs, they start to eat leaves before wrapping themselves into cocoons. Within two weeks, they emerge as adult butterflies or moths.
