July 14, 1997 We recieved our replacement Painted Lady butterfly larva today from Carolina. We will watch them carefully to see what happens to this batch. The caterpillars in this batch seem to be slightly bigger than the ones we recieved before. I am thinking that it won't take long before we see these larvae turn into chrysalides. Maybe the previous shipment were too small to begin their metamorphosis; maybe they were forced to begin their changes too soon under these conditions, and therefore they develop problems? We will see what happens. **SPECIAL NOTE: I don't know if we have mentioned this before, but we have continued our lessons on metamorphosis; if you don't see entries posted in here, it probably means that we have been working in our workbooks. I had ordered "The Butterfly Curriculum" with the caterpillars, and we also do lessons in this book.
