We Have Chrysalises!

Our Painted Lady caterpillars have been growing and growing and growing, and have now all formed their chrysalises. During the chrysalis stage, caterpillars make their transformation from a crawling caterpillar to a fluttering butterfly. Be sure to visit Children's Services to see
with your own eyes this amazing stage in the life cycle of the Painted Lady butterfly!

This is a close-up view of one of the chrysalises.

This is the view of the inside of our butterfly tent, with several chrysalises on display.
