During seasons with very low or high temperature fluctuations, we reserve the right to hold shipments to ensure the health of our organisms. This may briefly delay shipments during those periods. Carolina makes raising and studying painted lady butterflies easy with our 5-larvae culture cup. We ship larvae in a clear, self-contained culture cup so children can easily observe caterpillar development. There is no food to mix and nothing to set up. Caterpillars simply eat the medium supplied in the culture cup until they form a chrysalis. Children then hang up the chrysalises in the habitat. After 7-10 days, the adult butterflies will emerge hungry. Make sure you provide sugar water for the adults to eat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is awesome This was super exciting experience for my daughter and I. We both loved the experience of watching transformation of butterflies. The fact that everything was provided was very useful. The timing was great. They all transform with no problem. I will order again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product. Beautiful butterflies. When I first recieved my caterpillars I was skeptical. The following day I was amazed. They seemed to double in size everyday until the chrysallis stage. They all emerged into beautiful butterflies. Was a wonderful experience for my daughter and I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! We received 6 tiny caterpillars and were amazed to watch how quickly they grew in their little cup. We got 6 chrysalises and currently have 3 beautiful butterflies. We're waiting for the last three to "hatch." The kids love watching them change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described We received one where all the larve were alive and moving. My kids had great fun watching this woke process! We then let them go after about a week. At 3 and 4 I wasn't ready to explain all that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, great, beautiful The tiny caterpillars came in the mail and all 5 survived the entire time - it was great for the kids to see the butterflies emerge after running the cycle of life for them. God's creativity and precision on display was definitely seen! Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product was a dud! Unfortunately, the butterflies that we recieved did not do so well. We followed the instructions. The caterpillars looked dried out. When they did form a cocoon it took twice as long for them to come out. Only two butterflies came out and both had something wrong with their wings. They could not fly. We fed them and watched them, but they could not fly. Kind of disappointing to the kids :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as it said it would This project went well. Our butterflies took the entire 10 days to emerge. I would use their product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! What a fun activity to do with your kids and family. My kids as well as my husband and I were amazed at how educational these Larvae could be. We checked out books at the library and researched each phase of these butterflies. It's easy and a great learning experience. Can't wait to do it again.
