The Giant Caterpillar is a monstrous caterpillar that is found in the ruined temple of Shark Tooth Island, crawling on the statue of the Great Booga Shark.


The Giant Caterpillar has a segmented body, each segment is a bulging green-and-brown ball of flesh. It has large, bulging eyes and a green beak.



The Giant Caterpillar scuttles around on a golden shark statue in the ruined temple. It will knock you back if you touch it. It seems to be completely unaware of your presence. The Giant Caterpillar is one of the obstacles that you must face on your way to collect the Key Ingredient and the Old Bone.
