My solution is correct simply because the blue section has no leaf. Check the following condition mentioned in the puzzle: "One caterpillar will not have a leaf, she is taking a diet."

the puzzle doesn't request only one catapillar per slice,so you could have 2 catapillars one section with only one leaf.

Funny that the leaves are of the variety pictured, I would think that having eaten them that all caterpillars would be ravenous!!!

I don't think that works because they cant get to the leaf without crossing someone else's territory.

All solutions must include the swastika pathways drawn in the picture, each leg of the swastika takes up only seven squares. Beyond that, and maintaing the assumption that the squares must be contiguous, there is a total of three different solutions, which you have already discovered. The different solutions soley depend the number of ways you can arrange the two leftover squares. Either the two leftovers can be placed together on either end along the side of the largest square (two solutions) or one on each end of the side (the other solution and the one pictured).

The earlier solutions are pretty good but it's getting late and I didn't want to work that hard. Here's an easier solution. Just divide the grid into 4 3x3 squares. Then move one of the leaves.

Caterpillars - Back to the Geometry Puzzles

Slice the square into 4 identical sections, so that in each section there is 1 caterpillar with its leaf. One caterpillar will not have a leaf, she is taking a diet.

I created an alternate solution in paint but this section won't let me paste it into "spoilers" - any thoughts on why? :rolleyes:
