See you when we get back Raccoons!

This morning we took the "raccoons" down to the teacher (Ms K) to look after for us while we are away.
When I was cleaning the containers getting them ready I was thinking that this one was dead and I wouldn't bother taking it ... but then it wiggled! A very big wiggle! I got such a fright ... I may have even let out a little squeal heheee
So much to the delight (not) of Ms K she has the wiggler to mind as well. heheheee You can see it's skin that it shed in the photo too.

The monster caterpillar is safely tucked up in his new cocoon.
And here they are at the school waiting till home time :-)
Kids saying goodbye.Next post will probably be from the deep South of New Zealand :-)
Thanks for visiting.
