Welcome to my new pets! I know they look like little worms right now, but they are actually butterfly larvae. That's a fancy way of saying caterpillars. Soon, they will change into beautiful butterflies!
In 7 to 10 days, they will turn into chrysalides. Then, I must transfer them to this butterfly garden Habitat. I can hardly wait!
Now comes the important part: reading the instructions. This is just a little boring. But I do not want anything bad to happen to my pets.
The first part has some frequently asked questions (you can click to make it bigger if your eyes are No Good). It says I am Not Allowed to remove the lid and play with the larvae. Oh.
More words! I must keep the caterpillar container upright. There is supposed to be a little bit of silky webbing, and this is a good sign that they are well. I see the webbing! The instructions say the caterpillars will eat and grow many times their original size. This is very exciting!
I am looking inside the Habitat, but nothing is happening. My Mommie says I have to wait until we move the chrysalides in there. This is the boring part.I will let you know how my pets are doing!
