CHRYSALISES

This is a link to a video that someone made of the whole process of a caterpillar becoming a chrysalis. It is so cool and amazing. Really!!! You can see the caterpillar hanging in a “J”, then moving a bit, and then suddenly the skin starts to crack right behind the head, and it keeps peeling off all the way along the caterpillar’s body until all you see is the green chrysalis. The woman doing the video describes what is happening very well, and the camera records it very closely and clearly. It is very well done!

Make sure you watch it!

This is the fabulous video of the caterpillar changing to a chrysalis.

 

 

And now, finally, some chrysalises!!!

Here is a video I did on Periscope.tv in which I actually captured a caterpillar making a chryalis!!! I was so excited!!! Please watch it! I think you’ll enjoy it!
