In The "J"


By Diohio

In The "J" (Asclepias syriaca Common Milkweed)

When the Monarch caterpillar is finished his silk button, he turns around and sticks his anal prolegs tightly into the button. Within a few hours he will lower himself down into the "J" position. He'll be in the "J" position for about 10-13 hours.
