Watch the Miracle of Metamorphosis up close
This fun and educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars grow, change into chrysalides and emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies.
Raise and feed your very own butterflies and then release them into the wild to continue the butterfly cycle
The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes between 3 and 5 weeks to complete, please take into account any upcoming holidays when you choose the dispatch date for the caterpillars.
Just redeem the unique code on the VOUCHER included and Insect Lore will post your cup of 3-5 baby caterpillars out to you for a small fee of £2.99.
Your caterpillars will arrive in a small cup along with all the food and nutrients they need. Once grown they will transform into chrysalides, then after 3 days gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat. It will take about 7 to 10 more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies. Observe your beautiful Painted Ladies for up to 3 days before releasing them into nature so the cycle can continue.
The Butterfly Garden habitat is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up close butterfly viewing. Once your butterflies have been released into nature, simply soak the net in soapy water, rinse and then hang to dry. When not in use it folds flat for easy storage.
