If I were an insect, I would be an inchworm.

If I Were an Inchworm

First, because they are so cute! I remember that back in Texas, I once had two inchworms inching up my legs. They tickled and they were lime green.

I also want to be an inchworm because they mutate into beautiful moths (that occasionally destroy Japan with singing twins). Moths have antennae that are like fuzzy ferns (so cute). Unlike butterflies (which don’t destroy Japan), moths usually come out at night.

Anyway, back to inchworms. They can camouflage! They are usually brown, like twigs, or light green, like leaves. They get their names not from their size, but from the way they inch across surfaces, squish-stretch. They also have a secret weapon: they can rise up like cobras, to make themselves look all big and mighty to scare off predators, like spiders.

I love inchworms!! I passionately dislike their cousins, the glowworms. Look ‘em up. TERRIFYING! Back to inchworms again, all that tough mightiness wrapped up in a little bundle of cuteness! They are the cutest insects God made.

  1. I love your article Liz! I think inchworms are cute too! Gage wrote about being a glow worm… LOL! But he does turn into a firefly, so it was just an ugly stage he was going through! Looking forward to reading your next week’s post! Thanks for linking up!

      Thanks! I really enjoyed this topic! I am sorry I missed last week’s topic, I was not having the greatest of weeks.

  2. Hey Liz, amazing post! I also like Inch worms, I think the way they get around by inching along is very funny! Btw, I was a Glowworm in my story, for a short time anyway because I turned into a Firefly! (Hope you like Fireflies) :)
