Caterpillars - Day 4

The caterpillars have been busy eating and eating and growing and growing.
Here are some pictures the kids have taken. The pictures run from Day 4 up to about Day 12.

Eating and eating.

They are growing bigger

Starting to form the J Shape just before they turn into a chrysalis

They've turned into a chrysalis

 Taking them from the vials and putting them into the net on day 12
 Resting and waiting for their transformation into butterflies.

This is what's left in the vials. Do you see the left over skin from them shedding?

  1. Hi,

    Wow, wow, wow! We woulde love to have a catapiller that turns into a butterfly in our class. Our new topic is minibeasts so this is very exciting to see. We are going to have a incursion so we can see lots of minibeasts.
