Things are happening... last. One of the 42 caterpillars climbed up to the top of the cage. I notice him at the PM feed feeding/cleaning time. This morning I found him what is referred to as 'J'ing. Looks like a J, right! Takes about 12 hours or of stillness on his part. From here the chrysalis will form. I was so surprise to learn that the chrysalis is INSIDE of the caterpillar. I may not be here to witness it. I will assist with a 4.5 mile guided hike and hanging out with my Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalist until early afternoon. Stay tune! Lots more to come.
