Surprise! Can somebody help me with this one? It's as big as my thumb, moves extremely slowly on 4 pairs of sucker feet under the center of it's body and uses small claws to grab the food. Never seen before, totally free in my yard. It's a masterpiece of colors and design! I wonder what will be it's next life as a butterfly.....
