Carolina makes it easy to teach the concept of life cycle with live painted lady butterflies! This 8-oz cup comes with 5 Vanessa cardui butterfly larvae and their food. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days. Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that children never forget! 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 hatch, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learning alive My science classes are more interesting with real action happening. The kids could not believe the catapillars were real until they saw them move. We are waiting for the cacoons to appear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience for Kids I recently purchased the Painted Lady 5-Larvae for my grandchildren to share in the experience with the concept of life cycle of the painted lady butterflies. I ordered the 8 oz cup that has all the food - ( the process was fun and easy) , the best part was watching the excitement of the kids when the butterflys emerged in as little as 2-3 weeks. They could not wait to check on them every day and even named them all. Great fun for the kids and family, very educational. I highly recommend Carolina Biological Supply Company.
