Most people are well aware of the annual groundhog predictions issued each February, where we find out whether or not the spring will arrive early or be delayed based on the shadow of a groundhog. But how many people are aware that there are several other animals with predictions associated with them, including the wooly bear caterpillar?
The Isabella tiger moth larvae, also known as the wooly worm or wooly bear, has a little legend attached to it regarding the upcoming winter. The old story is that when the caterpillar has more black than brown, the winter will be more severe. If the caterpillar has more brown, the winter will be a milder one. Some trials conducted have given the story a bit of merit. Do you believe in predictions like these?
