Day 7 ... Caterpillars are 1 week old!

Caterpillars are now about 5cm long... Literally doubled in size overnight!

Very fat, very hairy and a bit creepy if you ask me!!

Cannot believe how quickly they are growing!

I agree, you couldn't say they were pretty!
As a child I kept some caterpillars in a pot that I think I took in to school to show everyone. My tip is to keep the pot well out of reach when the caterpillars go into chrysalis mode - if the chrysalises (?) are disturbed and get knocked off of whatever they have suspended themselves from, they won't emerge (ie. they'll die). Hope that helps, Katherine
