 Well we didn't have to wait too long for our 
caterpillars to start changing! Just
 yesterday we said that we couldn't wait for 
these to start changing. And then look,
 it was like our wish came true!
 Our first Monarch caterpillar has climbed to 
the screen top and change into a 
 chrysalis. We have noticed a few things that 
are different with these caterpillars.
 Here is what we have observed between 
the 2 different caterpillars.
 Painted Lady Caterpillars Monarch Caterpillars
Period of time from attachment to chrysalis; 
longer than the Painted Lady.
