Round Four - Day Eight - Second Moult

Two caterpillars have moulted and I just missed the actual moulting process, but see how different this caterpillar looks just after shedding his skin

He doesn't even look like a Peacock caterpillar anymore
A short time after:
The colour started to return to his head spines & bum!
Just 10 minutes after I took the first photo all the black colouring had returned completely and I now have four healthy Peacock Butterfly caterpillars and two old black skins sitting on a leaf looking really creepy!
