Watch through the fine netting of this pop-up butterfly abode as caterpillars shed their skins and form chrysalides, then emerge as beautiful butterflies. Observe them for a few days and set them free—this ubiquitous butterfly, the Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui L.), can be found throughout North America.
This biological process is a beautiful (and fun) way to teach your kids about metamorphosis. They will be amazed as they watch the caterpillars eat, spin silk, change into chrysalides...then emerge out of their "shell" as a beautiful butterfly!
Note: Your order will contain the Butterfly Pavilion. Once you receive your Pavilion, use the form enclosed with the Pavilion (along with a $9.95 shipping fee) to send away for your caterpillars. You'll receive 10 caterpillars and detailed instructions on how to care for them. To ensure your live caterpillars' survival, shipping may be delayed if temperatures are extreme. Also, before redeeming your voucher for your caterpillars, be sure you are ready to take care of them! You'll need to watch over them responsibly and observe them daily for changes.
