Caterpillar watch!


Reuben’s caterpillars have grown so much over the last week! We have one photograph to share, as well as two videos!


The caterpillars are eating the brown substance at the bottom of the tub. This food will help them to grow bigger and bigger, until they are ready for the next stage of becoming a butterfly. We can't wait to see what the caterpillars are going to look like in their next photograph or video!


Can you see all the hairs on their backs? Are there a lot or just a little? Can you count how many caterpillars there are inside the tub?
