Description:

The online companion to the June 2003 issue of _National Geographic_ magazine includes a fascinating (if somewhat grisly) look at carnivorous caterpillars, which represent less than one percent of known butterfly and moth species. The Web site offers a number of multimedia features, including the amplified "drumming and grunts" of _Maculinea alcon_ caterpillars inside a nest of ants, and a movie of a carnivorous caterpillar devouring a fly. The site also contains an excerpt from the magazine article, an extra essay about acid-squirting ants, a Web-exclusive photo gallery, and other interesting features.
