I do more then take of caterpillars...I went on a 4.5 mile hike. Getting ready for the 'real guided hike' for this Sat. event. The Back 40 event.
This was last night. Getting ready for feeding and cleaning time. Takes anywhere between 1-2 hours twice a day. About every 12 hours. Yes, it is so worth it! Wait, you'll see what I mean later in the month!
Last pic because I need to get ready to go kayaking on Beaver Lake, here in AR. But let me tell you what you are looking at. This is a monarch caterpillar molting. It's crawling out of his/her skin as it change from one instar to another. See the little 'cap', that is from his face! It is a pale yellow now, but it will change colors soon. Stay tune...We are up to 42 cats now, with lots of milkweed to feed these very hungry caterpillars!
