Today (12 August) we found three newly hatched caterpillars!Â They are about 2 mm long.Â Two of them were still eating their egg cases.Â We put two of them in the butterfly rearing container.Â One egg looks like it is going to be hatching soon.
- Cage; Still EATING MACHINE!Â Cleaned out frass.Â It is green!Â “Looks like bunny scat”,Â Audrey says.Â Â Trouble measuring, estimated 5 cm (2 inches).
- Blue lid container; the caterpillar is still 9 mm.
- Peanut butter container; gave fresh leaf.Â Caterpillar is 11 mm. “Little poop is cutie because it’s just baby caterpillar”, Audrey again!
- â€œThe Hatcheryâ€; down to 2 white eggs and we are questioning if the dark one is an egg or not.
- Butterfly rearing container; still has one egg.Â Added 2 newly hatched caterpillars from the Hatchery.
- New Nursery!; Moved one caterpillar egg and one caterpillar from the Hatchery.
