Does it mean like this

That elephant are fussy more than the caterpillars (or) caterpillars are more fussy than the elephant

    Just a couple of things to help you with your interpretations: Speaking in general with plural nouns we don't use 'the', so 'elephants' and 'caterpillars'. Also, it's more natural to say 'fussier' when we compare two things.

  • Additionally, it must be about their eating habits. It would make more sense to say: "Elephants are less fussy eaters than caterpillars." or "Elephants are less fussy about food (what they eat) than caterpillars."
