Caterpillars to Chrysalides

As you all know, I received this Live Butterfly Garden as a birthday gift from my sister a couple of weeks ago. I was going to wait until they were butterflies before I posted this, but I decided I'd just save that picture for later. Right now, I'm just waiting for the butterflies to emerge, hopefully in the next couple of days they'll be here. Yay!

Here are my little ugly caterpillars hanging upside down waiting for their little furry parts to change.

Here you can see that most of them have changed into their chrysalide form, all but one that is. At first I thought one of the little worms had died, but alas, it was still alive. The last one was a couple of days behind his sibs. :( lol

Now they've all changed!

And here they are now; I've moved them into their little butterfly habitat. When they emerge, this is where they will live for several days until I release them. More butterfly pictures to follow...

Those things look pretty gross right now. It's weird to think that they will eventually be beautiful butterflies!!
