** Fact Time!! **

Caterpillars produce silk!

Some Caterpillars use the silk the make their cocoon or to attach themselves to a leaf. That's how our hungry caterpillars are hanging from the top of the pot!

Some types of Caterpillars construct shelters or little silk tents by weaving the silk into a web! Just like a spider!

**Did you know?**

 

A Caterpillar makes it's Chrysalis by shedding it's skin. A bit like how snakes shed theirs. The chrysalis is used to protect the caterpillar while it turns into a liquid, soupy substance. From there it starts the transformation into a beautiful Butterfly!

 

Watch this video to see how it's done! laugh  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocWgSgMGxOc

**Fact of the Day**

An adult butterfly will eventually emerge from the chrysalis where it will wait a few hours for its wings to fill with blood and dry, before flying for the first time.

Bye Bye Butterfly!
