Day 11 of the butterfly project - caterpillar progress

So I've skipped blogging for day 9 and 10 of our butterfly project - the heat has been too much for us in our house so all our time has been spent enjoying this beautiful sunshine, trying to keep hydrated.  I'm not complaining though, the weather is absolutely beautiful! 


I have been taking photos however so you can all check out how quickly they are growing, and see what has been happening to our caterpillars over the last couple of days.  My six year old gasps every morning asking how they grow so quickly - we told her they eat all the breakfast lunch and dinner haha!! (she's not a great eater)

The days are based on the day the caterpillars arrived, sorry for any confusion but they are for the scrap book so we know when they were taken.







 




 



 

 

Today... 

 

They are so big and have ventured up to the top of the jug!  They're about 2 inches so I think they will be turning into Chrysalides very soon!
    FACT:  It only takes 10 to 12 days for a caterpillar to go from a small only just hatched caterpillar to one that is 4cm to 5cm long!
