    Hi! I’m new to raising monarchs and have had pretty good success so far. However, I have one caterpillar that seems to be paralyzed in it’s back half. The front legs seem to work. It was also oozing liquid but doesn’t look like an anal prolapse. It’s antennas are curled downward. I noticed a couple days ago that it had markings on it’s side that looks a little unusual. Almost like brownish blotches that look like bruises or scarring despite the caterpillar never having been dropped. If anyone has any ideas what this is, please let me know!
