Giant Green Caterpillar Squeaks Adorably When Gently Touched By a Human

A giant green acleris semipurana caterpillar squeaks adorably when gently touched by a human. According to MrInsaneInside, a commenter who appears to have a little knowledge about the subject, the caterpillar was not being harmed.

She actually doesn’t even make the sound on purpose, when the guy touches her but she just automaticaly [sic] withdraws, her trachea gets squished and the air in it just gets out, making this sound. At least I think it works like this with caterpillars, I’m sure with Death’s Head Hawk Moth it does… bottom line, the caterpillar is not in pain, she’s just more like “dafuq?”
