Fat Caterpillars

We’ve now had our caterpillars for 7 days. 3 of 4 of our caterpillars have moulted into …er newer looking caterpillars 😂;)
We lost Runt (RIP), so we only have 4 caterpillars now.

We decided to clean up their pot as it was getting pretty full of….waste and silk 🙂

It hasn’t taken them long to fill it with mess again though!

The kids enjoyed handling the caterpillars whilst I cleaned their pot, we’re hoping to hand rear any eggs the butterflies hopefully leave behind so have been researching the plants they like to lay their eggs on.

Have you ever kept insects? What was your experience of them?
