It’s amazing how fast these critters grow. Caterpillar “Mariposa” is already a quarter inch in size.
The second egg hatched, and I call this one “Luz.” She’s still quite small but eating, eating, eating. I’ll need to put more milkweed leaves out and check it twice a day now.
If you raise a caterpillar at home, the rule of thumb is one milkweed plant per caterpillar!
