My name is: Stripey (and friends)
We are Deaths-head Hawkmoth Caterpillars
Our scientific name is Acherontia atropos
We originally come from Africa and Southern Europe
We are harmless and will turn into beautiful moths, we are really good to hold. We have little suckers on our feet and cling onto your finger tightly so that we don't fall to the ground. Sometimes we come in different colours like our photograph.
We eat mostly Privet leaves but some other leaves too.
