Acronicta
Greetings! A little about me! I am in my early 30's, I'm short at 4'8" :) and I love Entomology and Arachnology.
Though I prefer Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths)

I study and raise caterpillars into adults, then release the adults into the wild.

My love of caterpillars began at the age of 4 when my grandmother showed me a Tomato Hornworm from her garden.
My first ever caterpillars I raised were Pipevine Swallowtail
My favorite cat is Hickory Horned Devil
Favorite cat plus moth is Harris's Three Spot
Fav "Family" is Limacodidae (the Slug moth caterpillars)
Fav caterpillar latin name is Acronicta retardata...The Retarded Caterpillar (yes that's its real name)
Oh and Unicorns are Real! At least the Shizura unicornis...The Unicorn Caterpillar Moth!

I've raised about 20+ different species of moths and about 10+ species of butterflies.
Currently breeding Luna moths and Promethea moths.
The most caterpillars of one species I've had at the same time were 560+....from one single moth!
Though sometimes I don't always get to successfully raise my caterpillars, sometimes I get Parasitoid wasp and/or flies, which are inside the caterpillars or cocoons.

For the spirit of Halloween....did you know there is a real living Vampire Moth! These moths can drink Human Blood! (However only the males do this)

This Winter keep an eye out for winter flying moths. These moths are active around the warmer months of winter looking for mates. **Some species of female moths will be Wingless, while the males can fly!!

Umm I'll add more later when I can think of other tidbits. Feel free to mail me and ask questions.
