Update on the Monarch butterfly caterpillars! On August 4 and 5th. We collected three caterpillars from our milkweed plants and put them in cages on a bookshelf in our back porch.
bodies were hanging in a “j” shape we knew they were on the threshold of entering their chrystalsis stage! By late Wednesday afternoon we could no longer see any caterpillars! In their place were three shiny green chrystalsis pods hanging from the top in each cage!
