Dave the Caterpillar: Day 3

"Mom? Dave the caterpillar still looks the same - green and hang-y."

"It says here that this is called the 'pupa' stage of the chrysalis."

"POOPA? That's super hilarious, Mom."

"But we'll have to keep an eye on him. Many don't make it past this stage."

"You know what we'll have to do if that happens to Dave?"

"Tell me."

"We'll have to call him Dead Dave."


  1. WOW!! You are so lucky to have a Monarch growing in your yard. I had the wonder to watch one come to life in a jar as a child, then set it free. One of my great childhood memories.Tell Bob to look it up, should give him a time line. Be ever so patient young man. Keep me updated. Thank You for this,just what I needed right now...

  2. He's very excited about Dave. I have high hopes for his survival! Xo

  3. We had monarch caterpillars in a jar several years ago with our children. It was the most magical things ever.
