…and they are caterpillars. They are between 18 mm and 20 mm (2 cm) long! they are Painted Lady Butterflies. We found them two days ago in a box in the mail! Momma ordered them for Science. Momma thought we would enjoy it.
They live in a container so far. The brown stuff is their food. They are eating, growing, and spinning webs. (I don’t know why. Maybe to hang their cocoons?) They like to crawl around.
