Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that children never forget! This 8-oz cup comes with 5 painted lady (Vanessa cardui) butterfly larvae and their food. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days. At least 3 out of 5 larvae are guaranteed to emerge as healthy adult butterflies. Larvae come with care instructions.

After the adults emerge, try breeding them. All you need is the proper host plant for the adults to lay eggs on. The mallow plant (item #144042) is the painted lady's natural host. Once your new generation of caterpillars hatches, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Note: Cannot be shipped into Puerto Rico.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing All of our catepillars died once they began to spin into their cocoons. This left a lot of students very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience with nature As a retired teacher, I know the importance of showing rather than just preaching to my students. I sent two of these out to friends grandchildren and these kids were inthralled. They watched the entire life process of the butterfly. If you want to increase young minds curiosity over nature, this is a simple and unique way to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So exciting! It's so fantastic for my students to witness life cycle of the painted lady butterfly. They have been so excited, and even though it doesn't seem like much is happening during the pupa stage, my transitional kindergarten students spend time each day observing them. I can't wait until the butterflies emerge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We got 6 Butterflies I bought caterpillars for my kindergarten class because we were studying the life cycle of the butterfly. We received 6 live caterpillars that all made a chrysalis and emerged a beautiful Painted Lady Butterfly. The students really enjoyed coming in daily and watching the changes that were taking place. They were really excited about the chrysalis and the actually emerging of the butterfly out of the chrysalis. They witness one coming out and were thrilled. Great product and fast shipment.
