A funny pose :-)
On Friday afternoon I suddenly remembered I hadn't cleaned his container and given him fresh leaves ... whoops! He sure covers the bottom of the container in "pine cones"!!! Mind you I am not surprised he poops a lot with the amount he eats!
On Saturday I asked Lyndon to get some more leaves for me (I can't reach that high up the tree!). He was very pleased with his find! The branch he got had 2 cocoons on it!!
I have noticed that when I carefully move the container to take a pic of the caterpillar he tucks his head down, hides his eyes in his chin!!!
I wasn't going to show you a photo of the other caterpillar, but on Thursday night when I went to check them I noticed that it wasn't actually dead at all!! It had shed it's skin and was (to use the words of Calvin & Hobbes) "transmogrifying" without a cocoon (or a cardboard box!!).
It hasn't changed much over the last couple of days. You can see it's skin to the left on the bottom of the container.
And this has nothing to do with caterpillars, but I didn't realise just what I was missing out on! Lyndon bought back these macaroons from Thailand. Oh boy they are divine! Particularly the red ones (raspberry flavour)! (Mind you it's probably I good thing I hadn't found out sooner ... my waistband is large enough!)
