fuzzy wuzzy wasn't really fuzzy was he

According to folklore, this fuzzy fella has the ability to predict the weather. And judging by this little friend I found today- we may have a mild winter coming!

One of my all time favorite finds outdoors...fuzzy caterpillars!!!

Also called the woolly bear caterpillar, the banded woolly bear, or just woolly worm, it’s the larva of the Isabella tiger moth (Pyrrharctia isabella).

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the woolly worm legend is based on the caterpillar’s 13 distinct segments of either rusty brown or black. Generally, it is black on both ends with rust-colored segments in the middle, however it might be almost all black or all rust. Folklore says that if the rusty brown band is wide (more segments), then it will be a mild winter. The more black there is, the more severe the winter.

What do you think? Can a caterpillar really predict the winter?
