And Here We Go!

January 12, 2013 butterfly Updates

Today, the larvae arrived and it appears that 4 of the 5 larvae survived the trip. They arrived in a little cup surrounded by bubble wrap and shipped in a bubble mailer. Instructions say to leave the larvae in the upright cup, sealed, and in a room temperature location away from sudden temperature changes. A spot on my desk seems like a good temporary location.

We have had fun watching these little ones munch on the food that is in the cup and Sam has named them already (even the apparently dead one).

They’ll be in this larval state for a week or so.

We’re excited!
