This article may be in need of improvement.
It doesn't spawn, yet the article copies other catepillars, it has to be adjusted, lacking item ID too

Fishing

Main article: Fishing

Caterpillars can technically be used as bait for fishing. However, current fish only respond to Little Bait Fish, Worm, Cricket, Grasshopper, Cockroach, and Maggots as bait, so doing so is not advised.

Foraging

Main article: Foraging

It is acquired through foraging. Not possible to acquire during winter times. It falls under the "Animal" category and has a higher chance to be found when foraging at night. It can be found at foraging level 0 and above.


Trivia

  • This item only shows up as "Caterpillar" in-game, and so is only distinguishable by the icon.
  • Interestingly enough, this item shows up as "Caterpillar" in-game, even though it is a larva. This might be because a quick google search discovers they are surprisingly similar to a caterpillar.
