So here are a few pictures we took of different sized caterpillars while Dad held a tape measure next to them. Pictures are from 4:30 pm on Saturday, so by the time this posts they will be bigger.
We think this guy is the biggest of all of them: there seemed to be several about 1 1/2 inches long, but he seemed the very longest.
A slightly smaller one (sorry for the focus).
These next two must have hatched later than the biggest ones. You can see this guy is not even 1 inch.
And THIS little fella is about 1/2 inch long.
Well that is fun just seeing how big they actually are. Very interesting. Have a great Sunday.ReplyDelete
Pretty long ! I wonder if all of them make a single line like a train. ow long it will be ?..just curious but not serious : )ReplyDelete
Have an easy Sunday
Please say " Meow " to Simba & Audrey for me
I hope to goodness you all can help mommy and daddy find at least one chrysalis. (Mommy can't spell that) because they are beautiful!ReplyDelete
They are whoppers! I think they would be fun to watch for hours at a time.ReplyDelete
We'd love to get one of those for our Mum - she would be so excited!!!ReplyDelete
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
what fun this is watching them grow!ReplyDelete
Awww, they are just little guys!ReplyDelete
Great idea to measure them! I wonder how much they can grow in just one day?ReplyDelete
What a great idea! Too bad you can't get 'em to wear tiny name tags...ReplyDelete
MOL @ Katnip Lounge!ReplyDelete
We can't wait to see them get bigger!
Ugh! Even though the mom wants to put in parsley to help the butterflies, she gets the willies from anything that looks like a worm. Ewww. Guess she wob;t be looking too hard at her garden.ReplyDelete
PS Thanks for the email! The Girl moved into her first apartment this weekend, its been really crazy busy here, so the mom hasn't replied yet.
I hope every one of them turns into a butterfly.ReplyDelete
That's a great idea to measure the caterpillars like that! We hope you get lots of pretty butterflies. :)ReplyDelete
Hmmm. Well, I guess it would be sorta fun to see them all become butterflies, but still.....I look at them and my brain says: SNACK.ReplyDelete
How are they doing, Simba? xoxReplyDelete
Hi Buddy. Eaten them yet?ReplyDelete
Now that is one thing we have not shown any inclination to do!Delete
