Ban Caterpillars from restaurants, pubs and clubs! This caterpillar puffs out nicotine

Scientists have recently discovered that a caterpillar (named a Hornwarn Caterpillar) puffs out Nicotine to ward off wolf spiders!

The caterpillar obtains the nicotine from tobacco plants that it consumes. Scientists had no idea that the caterpillars were using this specific defence mechanism until they observed wolf spiders preying on them. It is believed that the advantage of this type of mechanism is that it warns the approaching predator of the toxicity of the Caterpillar.
