Some species of caterpillar have 4,000 muscles in their body. Compare  that to the human muscular system, which is made up of only 639. It’s  not unusual for insects to have more muscles than humans; grasshoppers  have about 900.   Still, why do caterpillars have so many more  muscles? It’s for a unique form of transportation.
