As I shared last week the caterpillars made their chrysalis. We were surprise to learn that they shed their exoskeleton to reveal their chrysalis. I didn't share any pictures last week so let me show you pictures now! This was taken last week on the 14th after all of the caterpillars formed their chrysalis and they were moved to the butterfly habitat.
So this morning about 7:30 I checked the chrysalis and everything seem "normal" they looked pretty much the same as they have been. Although I noted that two of them are slightly different color. No movement, just different color.
Then at 8:30 something caught my eye. I took a look and what did I see:
Ten Kids and a Dog stated they get a bit messy when they leave their cocoon.
For food we have placed some coffee filters soaked in sugar water and placed on a Tupperware lid "on the bottom of the container". It's actually the "top" of the container. However when I thought about having to feed them I new it would be easier to just unzip the lid and slide the food in and out instead of having to place my hands and arm into the container to place things on the bottom. So we made the top the bottom so we could just unzip and slide the food in and out with minimum disturbance to the butterflies.
