Caterpillar navigates using the sun

Still Waters

An unusual caterpillar uses the sun to navigate as it jumps to safety, according to scientists.

The larva of Calindoea trifascialis, a species of moth native to Vietnam, wraps itself in a leaf before dropping to the forest floor.

It then spends three days searching for a suitable place to pupate, despite not being able to see out of its shelter.
