Teen Snaps Step-By-Step Photos Of Caterpillar’s Beautiful Transformation

It was a normal school day for a 16-year-old Tumblr user Oddity. Oddity was walking to class one morning when someone appeared on the sidewalk.

It was a chubby green caterpillar with eyespot markings that made him look like a cartoon character come to life. Oddity was afraid the little dude would get stepped on by a careless passerby and so he scooped him up and took him to class.

Along the way, the caterpillar was named after the first thing Oddity thought of: Chicken Nugget.

Now, everyone knows that as cute as caterpillars are, they don’t stay caterpillars for long. Instead, they turn into beautiful butterflies through a process called metamorphosis, during which their whole body liquifies and reforms, turning from wiggly caterpillars to fluttery butterflies that land on tiny children’s noses. Nature really is amazing.

Luckily for us, Oddity documented Chicken Nugget’s incredible transformation and shared it online, where it became an instant hit.
