Winged Caterpillars hatch with their wings present and never undergo metamorphosis.
Some have wings that are large enough for them to fly with, while others do not. Wing size generally negatively correlates with the number of legs; more legs means smaller wings, fewer legs means larger wings.
It is the same way with the colors of the body and wings: those with colorful bodies tend to have dull wings, and those with dull bodies have colorful wings.
Because of this, many Winged Caterpillars are very into the idea of natural balance in all things. Some apply this to their spiritual beliefs as well.
Those with medium-sized wings that aren’t quite big enough to be used for flight frequently find them a hassle to take care of.
Some have fuzz on their bodies, and some have spikes, although full Winged Caterpillars are never venomous.
Winged Caterpillars are able and usually willing to breed with most other insect species.
