Close-ups Of Caterpillar 'Feet' (12 Pics)

Stop the presses, who in this universe would have thought that caterpillars have such cute feet? 

Not us, that's for sure! There's so much beauty in some insects (sorry roaches, we're just not ready for you yet), and sometimes that beauty isn't really noticeable to us at first. Then you see it in a new light, a fresh perspective, and all of sudden you're thinking the impossible --- bugs can be cute! Like, those tiny tarantula paws! Those were awwdorable!

The 'feet' seen down below are known as the caterpillar's 'prolegs,' "small, fleshy, stub structure found on the ventral surface of the abdomen of most larval forms of insects of the order Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths)."

Well, like we said about the roaches, maybe not ALL bugs but definitely caterpillars and definitely their little feet!

Straightened Feetsies In All Their Glory (20 Cat Pics)

Seems like there's a subreddit for absolutely ANYTHING these days! And that includes anything cat-related!

Which is A-OK with us! Actually, it's more than OK. We can drown in those cat sub forever, happily so. 

The subreddit, r/straightenedfeetsies, is a place for photos of cats, dogs, and any other floofs with straightened feet/legs. 

How does the rating system work in this subreddit, one might ask. Well, it's simple: "one straightened feetsie in a photo is enough, but two is even better! Three is amazing. And four? Four is the royal flush of straightened feetsies! Bonus points for straightened feetsies sticking out from underneath blankets."

Do you have a straightened feetsies floof you'd like to share? Post it in the comments below!

These Animals Are Stomping Around On Some Of The Weirdest Feet Ever

Though animals' colorful array of absolutely ludicrous feet may seem random, every foot serves an important evolutionary function. Just like strange animal mouths help our furry friends chomp, weird feet help them climb, balance, and run. Some of the animal feet replicate humans' just a little too closely for comfort  while others are just bizarrely over sized. Via: Ranker

California Wildlife Center recently rescued a Northern Mockingbird whose feet were knuckling, meaning she was unable to open her feet to stand or perch. This was causing the bird to have to stand on the tops of her toes which were curled under and causing her additional injury. CWC veterinary staff created "snowshoes" for the mockingbird to retrain her feet to open and allow the injuries to her toes to heal. The treatment was successful and the bird is now snowshoe-free and on the road to full recovery!
