“I really don’t want anyone to eat this wattle cup caterpillar.”
“Sure, evolution, that’s understandable.”
“I’m going to put some huge spikes on it.”
“Okay.”
“Now I’m going to put more spikes on the spikes.”
“… okay.”
“And I’ll make them sting!”
“Fair.”
“And I’ll color the whole thing like a bad acid trip.”
“That might be overkill, but all right. I guess you really like this one. I bet it’ll be especially beautiful once it metamorphoses into a butterfly, huh?”
“What? Oh, no, this one doesn’t turn into a butterfly. It’s a hairy brown moth.”

You crazy, Nature!
