Looks a lot like a maggot, but greener.

Looks like a little caterpillar! Is it alive? Can you put it outside?

slartybartfast Sat 29-Mar-14 10:07:12

caterpillar, or grub <<are they the same thing>>

Wow. A play dough caterpillar!?

ScarletLady02 Sat 29-Mar-14 10:09:25

Is it moving? I've seen caterpillars like that but they move in quite a distinctive way

Definitely a caterpillar

Looks like a brimstone or maybe skipper caterpillar, though there are some other similar kinds esp moth ones, though it doesn't seem to have spike like hawkmoth ones and I'm not too sure of others. You could do with a size scale. I'm guessing from the smear by the side that it's been pecked by a bird or squashed sad.

Good caterpillar ID guide here since you can see it closer than us www.ukbutterflies.co.uk/species.php

In the kitchen?

It must be very, very hungry.

I've binned everything and bought them new just in case it's a maggot. Now time to scrub their kitchen from top to bottom.

MooMa42o Sat 29-Mar-14 11:43:45

what have you binned? and what have you brought new? i am confused, it is definitely a caterpillar!

ilovepowerhoop Sat 29-Mar-14 11:47:13

FFS its only a caterpillar not the bubonic plague!! What needed binning and why does everything need scrubbing??

ilovepowerhoop Sat 29-Mar-14 11:47:32

its not an effing maggot

gordyslovesheep Sat 29-Mar-14 11:48:26

jees over reaction much! It's a caterpillar not a dirty bomb

GreenShadow Sat 29-Mar-14 11:50:38
