True eyes or eye spots?
Caterpillar's true eyes are on the side of their head. What can they see actually? Caterpillars only see light and dark. Some caterpillars have eyespots. An eye spot is a circular, eye-like marking found on the body of some caterpillars. These eyespots make the little ones look like the face of a larger animal and may scare away some predators.
I saw this creature at my front yard. I think the eyes are true ones.
