Educational Caterpillar Supply

Watch the miracle of metamorphosis unfold before your eyes.  When you receive your Painted Lady caterpillars you will be amazed at how quickly they grow through the different life stages.  


When your caterpillars arrive they will be in the early larvae stage.  Normally this is about ten days old.  Your Painted Lady caterpillars will then grow for another ten days and reach the chrysalis stage.


Most are in the chrysalis stage for 7-10 days.  After several days a newly emerged Painted Lady Butterfly will amaze you by expanding its wings and stretching them for the first time.


To enjoy this metamorphosis process please place an order today!


Welcome to We feed our Painted Lady caterpillars a blended organic diet from the time them hatch from their tiny eggs through larvae stage. Caterpillars are shipped in rearing cups when they are just a few days old. Each rearing cup has four caterpillars. The rearing cups have enough diet to sustain the caterpillars to their chrysalis stage.

We love helping students learn about metamorphosis! To order for a classroom or homeschool group please email for special classroom pricing. Thanks!
