Caterpillar Update

Growing, growing and still growing. This caterpillar goes through about 8-10 Milkweed leaves a day! We're going to have to get some more milkweed this weekend to keep up with our hungry, little guy.=) It'll be a nice break when he actually hibernates in his chrysalis for a bit so we won't have to feed him all the time. He's SO interesting to watch. Again, if you've never tried this experiment (even if you don't have kids), it's so much fun. I'm hoping that my nieces and nephews (Izzy,Zander, Abigail, Sammy and Aleah) can help us find more caterpillar eggs this summer so we can watch this tiny miricle take place.
