The Last Caterpillar

I have some sad news. Over last weekend, my last polyphemus caterpillar died. I thought my projects were over, but on Thursday, I was taking a walk, And I discovered something.

He’s now in my custody, and doing fine. He eats maple, and is in his 5th instar. I know that Woolly Bears are really basic caterpillars to raise, but beggars can’t be choosers. Plus he’s adorable.

I’ll tell you how he’s doing as much as possible. =)
