Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! We received 6 caterpillars and so far all six have survived and are in chrysalis form. Very fun and educational project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Elementary The Painted Lady kit is quite complete which is really nice. I have used this with my second grade classes for ten years now and the larvae are consistently alive upon arrival and do move on the form chrysallises and then butterflies. As a bonus the butterflies lay eggs which hatch as larvae allowing for second generation growth study. This is a favorite unit of my students each year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful experience for all ages Truly great way to bring nature and life-cycle upfront and close in a way that very few people ever see. A child's experience with this is educational, thought provoking and fun. We felt we needed a little more information around when and how to transfer chrysalis's to the butterfly house. We eventually dug around and found a video on the website to help answer some of our questions - if that was easier to get to it would have helped us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big fat juicy caterpillars! This is amazing! The caterpillars were delivered exactly on my kindergartener daughter's birthday just as we requested. It seems like every day they have doubled in size! Our family is loving this! We have 6 big juicy fat caterpillars and all that we need to take care of them. My daughter loves bugs! She collects them in our garden. So this was a home run of a gift for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All included, excellent quality I'm a college student in need of an invertebrate pet for my zoology class. After seaching many sites for the caterpillar larva and the butterfly habitat this was the best value. And had the shortest shipping time. I received 6 larva, but only expected 5. And they all survived the shipping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expensive to order more larva/caterpillars; 40% were DOA I was disappointed with the delivery and mortality rate. The two caterpillars which survived and are thriving have the students very excited. One more of the five is definitely the "runt" - less than 1/3 the size of the thriving two. Two (of five) were dead on arrival.
