Saturday Critters ~ 190 ~

Caterpillar Update...
Everything is going really well!
All 8 caterpillars have survived and are doing really well.
They eat and poop constantly, and I clean the containers every day.
I have not received the netted home I ordered, 
which is much bigger than these small plastic containers.
They are fine in these,
I primarily need the large one for when they turn to butterflies.
Once they turn to butterflies, I will only keep them indoors for about an hour,
so they can dry their wings, then I will have the big release!

Here's some pictures from this morning, while I cleaned out their homes.

This is Feisty

This is Sleepy






I have 4 in each jar right now, with a netted top.
This will be fine until they turn to butterflies.
Even though I will only be keeping them 1 hour, 
they need room to fly around and dry their wings.

  1. My son found a bunch of these in our garage. They scared him!

    Any thoughts on why they would be in there?
