Last night while we were all in our beds sleeping something special
 happened: our first Monarch caterpillar made his way to the top of
 the aquarium and changed into a chrysalis.

His chrysalis is different from the ones we observed with the Painted Lady;
 this one is a bright green.

We spent some time today observing the chrysalis and discussing
 and noting the differences between the two kinds. We made a small chart
 to show you what we found. What can you see when you look at the chart?
