Grow real butterflies!
The Butterfly Pavilion features ten Painted Lady butterflies soaring to
new heights in an attractive, mesh enclosure, where you can watch
your caterpillars turn into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies.
Nature's on the wing. See what develops. Witness the miracle of
metamorphosis, nature's way of saying, "Hey, grow up!" First, watch your
caterpillars eat their special food. You'll be amazed at how fast they grow.
Next, see them hang upside down and shed their skins to form chrysalides (CHRYS-A-LIDS).
Finally, discover how they complete their metamorphosis by emerging as
beautiful adult butterflies.
Witness the wonder of the butterfly life cycle with this amazing
educational experience! Judged “best overall” butterfly-raising kit by the
Wall Street Journal, and winner of the 2004 Teachers’ Choice Award!
Six butterflies are guaranteed to be perfect specimens. Please allow
approximately 3 weeks for your larvae to develop. During extremely hot or
cold weather, delivery of live larvae may be delayed.
* PLEASE NOTE: These Painted Lady caterpillars can only be shipped to the
Continental USA and Alaska.
