Very Hungry Caterpillars

Two very hungry Monarch caterpillars visited the Children’s Room at Family Storytime on Monday morning. We also got to see this Monarch chrysalis bivouacked out beneath an aloe plant, of all things. Soon a butterfly will emerge from the chrysalis. Can you spy the chrysalis hanging with its golden dots?
If you stop by the Children’s Room soon, you might be able to see a very hungry caterpillar eating milkweed leaves on its way to becoming a chrysalis and, eventually, a Monarch butterfly. And if you see my butterfly gardener mother, tell her thanks for supplying us with these amazing creatures! Family Storytime continues Monday mornings at the Children’s Room.
