Baltimore Checkerspot larvae: The last nest of 4th-instar larvae (out of 1000s) were all tucked in for the winter in their 2000-square-foot bed of white turtlehead. I took a couple of the late 3rd -instar larvae home to photograph on Aug 26th; forgot about them for a week; and opened the tin to find that the one still very lively larvae had cannibalized the other.
