The caterpillars have entered the chrysalis stage of metamorphosis. In 7-10 days they will be butterflies. During the chrysalis stage the caterpillar will attach themselves to the lids of the caterpillar cups. After a few days take the lid off carefully and place it in the log holder provided in the kit to get a closer look.
