27.4.20- Caterpillar Update!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the lack of update yesterday, we had a few internet troubles! Anyway, all is back to normal so here is today’s update. The caterpillars are now enormous and eating lots. They are building a lot of webbing to protect themselves in their container. Some of the bigger ones are beginning to explore the top of the container and climb across the lid which I’m hoping is a sign that they are going to start pupating soon.

Today’s question is why do you think they are changing colour?

Thank you to Aaliyah for sending me her ideas as to why they have spiky bodies. Aaliyah thought it was to stop birds eating them and I think you are absolutely right!

Here are the names that were chosen at random from the options sent to me: Daisy, Rose, Max, Lloyd and Martha.
