caterpillar cocoon help!

Recommended Posts

DD found some caterpillars on the parsley so we brought them in to put in one of those butterfly-grow-things. There were 3 and then there were....2. One seemed to have disappeared or escaped. Well today we found it....building its cocoon on the side a construction paper pack in the school room. What'll I do?? What'll I do?!?:bigear::bigear::bigear::bigear:

The are probably black swallowtail caterpillars, and by all means, let it make its chrysalis on the construction paper! Then just move it somewhere where you can keep an eye on it! Here is a blog I found with a quick search about black swallowtail caterpillars, with pics.




In our house we have been raising monarchs all summer! Fun!
