…there is no cute baby butterfly in there.
Instead, the caterpillar is digesting its own body.
Instead, you’ll find a soupy mix of insect parts, as the undefined organic mass makes its murky journey, its complete and total transformation.
Instead, you’ll find a creature worthy of John Carpenter’s The Thing, worthy of the greatest “body horror” movies of all time.
Do not open a chrysalis before it is due; the caterpillar’s parts will leak out and you will kill it.
