On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we meet a worm that’s not really a worm at all.
Loopers, or inchworms as they’re commonly called, move along the ground, twigs or branches with the characteristic opening and closing of an upside-down letter U. These creatures are not true worms. Rather, they are caterpillars. As caterpillars, they often look like the twigs or branches on which they move. However, their odd form of movement can give them away. But when a looper feels threatened, it suddenly freezes into the same shape as a nearby twig. Its body also feels stiff just like a twig.
Many scientists suggest that the looper “just happens” to be the same color as the branches on which it crawls. We ask, does it also accidentally know how to act like a twig to fool predators? The almighty hand of God is evident even in the inchworm!
