My Butterfly Blog: What an Appetite!

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!
