A caterpillar’s transformation is a beautiful process. What’s more, caterpillars don’t require tedious maintenance like dogs and cats. You simply need some plants to keep a couple of caterpillars and watch them transform into a butterfly or moth.

If you aren’t looking for the most spectacular pet name, you’ll probably get a great name from the above.
