We received our little caterpillars in the mail early December, and we watched them grow and grow until they were BIG fat caterpillars. Then we hauled them to Oklahoma City where we watched them turn into little cocoon's and then they emerged as pretty butterflies. We were excited that all 5 of them survived and are feeding them oranges to keep them alive until this cold snap warms up a bit and I can release them out into the wild. Yes, I am pretty sure they will not live very long out there as it is too cold and I think they will have a hard time finding food, but as long as they do not return to the yard and the kids find their dead bodies laying around all will be well.
