I wanted to find something special for my granddaughter when she graduated first grade, something that could courage her interest for nature. I found a cage with zip and transparent cover so it was easy to observe. Then put there peacock eye and small tortoise-shell caterpillars. besides I made same present to my niece. Children were happy to receive such presents!
Granddaughter told me that it was the best present even better then any computer game! Of course I was happy to hear that.
We fed caterpillars with nettles, and more than a dozen (all of them) pupated.
