Thought this would make a neat Manic Monday posting.

This fellow is called: The "Lopatapillar" at the Butterfly House in St. Charles a suburb of St. Louis (Missouri Botanical Garden). He is a 30-foot long caterpillar sculpture and sits among native prairie plants just outside the entrance. The creator/artist Bob Cassilly and presented to the Butterfly House by Lucy and Stanley Lopata.

Thank You for Your Time & Comments Appreciated.

Have a beautiful day, ♥ Skates

What a wonderful and talented man Skates. I can't believe his life came to an end in such a horrible manner.
What a shame, he was so generous and talented.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo and information.

There should be a monster movie out there that would have used a giant caterpillar as its lead. I agree with Tick, what a horrible death of the artist.
