Nature is GROSS!

18 Mar

Oh my goodness, this is disgusting! A few weeks ago I told you about my adventure with growing butterflies. To recap; I bought the kit at Target, and promptly ordered my LIVE caterpillars. They arrived a few weeks ago and have been growing steadily ever since. When they first arrived, they weren’t too bad, just titty bitty little things crawling around their little cup.

Well, they’re not so tiny anymore, in fact they’re HUGE! It’s like a train wreck, I can’t look away, but looking at them makes me want to puke. Today we got our very first chrysalis, I kid you not when I say I was dry heaving while looking at it. For those fortunate enough to have never seen a chrysalis, it’s like a brown hunk of wax just hanging there. 

Gee, when I say it like that it doesn’t sound so bad, but it IS! Maybe you should go get your own butterfly kit and grow your own so you can see for yourself. 

So now we’re waiting for the other 4 caterpillars to turn into chrysalides before I make Bill move them to their new home. 

Believe me when I say the picture does NOT do justice. 

More to come on my butterfly adventure of 2010.
