Caterpillars!!When I was 13, I leaned against a tree that, unbeknownst to me, had a bunch of caterpillars like this. SQUISH! I was horrifed!
Yeah! I really think you should send it to National Geographic!
This is the link to upload your photos to National Geographic! :)http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/your-shot/submit
Wow! Thanks Kirigalpoththa. Will let your know how it goes
Well for all the amazed people, This is really normal behavior for caterpillars and they usually do it at a time of year which I'm not certain about (Yeah I'm that guy who has a bad idea about time). And also I guess that tree might be a suriya tree (Tulip tree of Sri Lanka?) coz they are known to hang and make out there a lot ;).
