Some of my caterpillars are getting too big for their jars, especially the ones that share a jar with others. I had two jars, one with 3, another with 5, all roughly the same size, and they are just growing like crazy!! So, I made them a bigger cage by taking a large plastic platter and a wire waste basket. I just will the plate with milkweed leaves, and turn the basket upside down and there you have it!
This first picture is of the bigger cages:
Next is a close-up of one of my caterpillars in his new home:
And last is a picture of all the caterpillars I put together in their trash can home. Big, aren't they?
Thank you for the comments I have gotten concerning my "new family"!!!
