We found a caterpillar which has a rust colored body and a black head. We live in Northwestern New Jersey, USA, and it is currently snowing out. We thought it wouldn't surivive without our help. We brought it inside our house and would like to know what to feed it. It's fur is long and the caterpillar is about an inch and a half in length. Please send us info ASAP; we don't know how long it can survive without food. Thanks a lot! Sincerely Mary Rose Castro, Morgan, and Mai-Lani Castro (ages 3 1/2 and 2)
