The Minor Miracle of Monarch Metamorphosis, Part 1

One of the science teachers here currently has a couple petri dishes full of newly-hatched monarch caterpillars on his desk. “There are about sixty-five caterpillars in there,” he said, and never having seen newly hatched caterpillars before and therefore not realizing how INCREDIBLY TINY they are, I almost said “Where?”

Oh. There they are.

More to come.

    1. I’d seen monarch caterpillars and monarch adults “in the wild” before (though neither very often), but never a chrysalis. It’s milkweed you need to watch if you want to find them, obviously.
