How do pupae inflate so fast?

Recommended Posts

I noticed my stag L3 was about to pupate and was still a grub waiting to pupate on his back, less than 12 hours later and I am looking at this thing that is 2x as big and totally different. Is it their juvenile growth hormone or what? I don't understand how it can grow so fast, almost like it has been inflated like a pool toy.
