Queen (danaus gilippus) caterpillar 12/12/14

Very late queen caterpillars (2) that I found feeding on Mexican Milkweed. I could not find them a day later so they were probably eaten by a predator or just perhaps they had formed a chrysalis. Queen looks looks like a monarch except they have (3) antennae and monarch cat has only (2).
