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 8-oz 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 Better than expected. So far we are 12/12 for crystallis formation! Hopefully it ends with 12 butterflies. I’m optimistic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! Bought this and the kids were super excited to get to watch this happen. It was still March when I ordered(in Texas you really need to order when it is still cool) and they arrived all alive. It looked like 5 but then as they grew there were 6. Five made it to butterflies and flew away yesterday=)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful butterflies! My boys loved watching the process of metamorphoses! The feeding instructions were a bit conusing to me and the butterflies didn’t seem to drink off the paper towel through a cup... I had to make changes to that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precious memory I bought this to teach my 3 yr old grandson about the life cycle and we created a wonderful memory. The timing was perfect- a blessing from God. He visits me every other week and I was worried that the life cycle wouldn’t happen while he was with me. But, I shouldn’t have worried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids loved it My kids had a wonderful time “raising” their caterpillars. Shipping was very fast. The color on the butterflies was very vibrant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not thrilled I ordered 3 sets for my classroom. Delivery took longer than what I have seen when ordering from a different company. When the caterpillars arrived there were only 4 in the container, when the company advertised 5. And I only received one cup not the 3 I ordered. I waited a few days to see if they would come, they never did. I contacted the company on a Wednesday and told that they would get right back to me. Ten days later I had to contact them again. I was told that all 3 cups should have been in 1 box. I was issued a refund as I did not want to wait any longer. As far as the quality of the 4 that I did receive, I am still waiting for them to hatch out of the chrysalis. However, they caterpillars were larger than I expected. They came on a Monday afternoon and where starting to hang by Wednesday. The children did not have a chance to observe them as much as they had in other orders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life in real time. It's one thing to teach students about metamorphosis; however, allowing them to watch this transformation with their own eyes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience We loved watching our tiny caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies. We had 1 little guy that came out with only two leggings and of course my girls were sad but it's doing Great! We let the others go and have been enjoying this one a little longer.
