So i have a caterpillar and my 3yr-old cousin poked it a couple times. It spit up green fluid. I looked up online, it said its a defense thing but he/she is still spitting it up nd its been 10 mins. But she/he isn't moving very much. What should i do?

Clean the mess, cover his tank. He/she may still feel threatened by the surroundings. Imagine a monster a few billion times bigger than you, poking you. Then imagine, that monster comming back. And your stuck in in a little space, with no chance of escape. Cover the tank, give the poor thing a break.

Just leave it alone, as he's "playing dead "by not moving.It's a defence mechanism against predators or being handled by humans.
