After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into chrysalides (chrysalides are also known as pupae). Toys that will encourage your children to imagine, create, discover, explore, get messy and have fun!

Comes with a feeding pipette, activity guide and instructions, with a certificate voucher that you redeem to receive a set of five caterpillars (sent March to mid-September). Certificate for painted lady caterpillars with their special food will be delivered to your doorstep.You then watch the tiny caterpillars grow up to ten times their size before transforming into chrysalides - watch them change into beautiful butterflies and release them into the wild. The Butterfly Garden with certificate for caterpillars is a good option if you are not sure when you will be ready to receive and raise your butterfly larvae. Please note that Caterpillars will only be sent from March to Mid-September, as they would not survive at other times of year. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Keep the butterflies in the mesh habitat for a couple of days to study and enjoy them, then release your adult butterflies into the wild.

Observe the life cycle of a Painted Lady from caterpillar to fully grown butterfly in their own garden environment.

Once they have all pupated you have to wait 3 days before moving them, this is so that the cases can harden so as to not damage them. Butterflies are nearsighted but can see many of the same colors that we can - as well as ultraviolet colors that we are unable to see. That's why we recommend you release your butterflies when daytime temperatures are above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have received your kit you will be able to redeem your caterpillars by post from Insect Lore. The whole experience takes 3 to 5 weeks and ends when the butterflies are released back into nature.

After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into chrysalids (chrysalids are also known as pupae).When this has happened you transfer the card (with chrysalis still attached) into the mesh cage and wait. Includes reusable, washable pop-up habitat net (30cm tall), voucher to purchase 5 caterpillars, nutrition, feeding pipette and full instructions.

This educational kit gives children the opportunity to watch close up the miracle of 'Metamorphosis'. The butterfly must "fuse" or "zip" these two parts together to form one tubular proboscis before it is able to eat.

In 1965, he was inspired to develop a kit that would allow people of all ages to witness the metamorphosis of real, live butterflies in their own homes or classrooms. This amazing kit enables children to experience the metamorphosis of caterpillars to Painted Lady Butterflies. It will take about seven to ten more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies.
