The Caterpillar Lab is a nonprofit, educational business in the small town of Keene, New Hampshire. Though many people might reflexively think of caterpillars as unpleasant or even downright disgusting, The Caterpillar Lab is working to show off the beauty of those insects with the help of its YouTube channel.

The videos on The Caterpillar Lab's YouTube include educational videos as well as those designed purely for speculation. On the pure entertainment side, the videos simply show off some of the business' most interesting specimens (including stinging rose caterpillars, black-waved flannel caterpillars, and saddleback slug caterpillars.) These videos let the insects frolick in front of a white background.

Other videos aim to be educational, showing various caterpillars as they shed and including a helpful narration.
