Orange Caterpillar with black thorns

Orange Caterpillar with black thorns -- Ulat beluncas warna oren dengan duri hitam

Shot this caterpillar in kampung Teluk Pasu, Manir, Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu, Malaysia. It is walking on a pink Bougainvilla flower.

Caterpillars are the larval form of a member of the order Lepidoptera (the insect order comprising butterflies and moths). They are mostly herbivorous in food habit, with some species being insectivorous. Caterpillars are voracious feeders and many of them are considered pests in agriculture. Many moth species are better known in their caterpillar stages because of the damage they cause to fruits and other agricultural produce. [Wikipedia]
