Now that is some trek he is on!!

What an undertaking for this guy!

If I could have shown you the whole beach, you would really pity him--except that he's a tent caterpillar and it is hard to have TOO much sympathy!

I wonder where he would go if there were no tents! A bit like a house spider with no house!

Well, of course, they make their own tents--now that he is on the move from his tent, he is probably looking for a place to pupate!

I think the tents help protect them from predation. Mostly when they are smaller.
