Description

We could find about a dozen Monarch larvae on a large (8-ft tall) exotic milkweed shrub, Crown Plant, Calotropis gigantea (Asclepiadaceae), near the Botanical Gardens in Balboa Park. No chrysalises were found on or near the plant.

I'm leaving the picture oriented just as the caterpillar was, foraging or getting ready to attach himself to the underside of a leaf.
