The Wombats children are always in search of bugs. Will the pet caterpillar be transformed into a butterfly?

Hoping for a butterfly!

20 May 2021 The Wombats children are always in search of bugs. A few weeks ago they were captivated by the snails that Miss Phoebe brought in. Just this week Mariel was excited to find a cricket and Harvey showed off the worm he found proudly to everyone. Miss Bec found a caterpillar in her garden and thought the Wombat children would find this very interesting. On Monday Leo and Christopher helped Miss Lisa prepare a container for the caterpillar to live in by adding some soil from the vegetable garden. They searched for some twigs to add to the container and the children picked some lettuce leaves. After a few days it became very clear that our caterpillar was very particular about food as it wasn’t eating the lettuce leaves, so Miss Bec added some more camellia leaves for it to munch on. We wonder if it will make a chrysalis? It will be very exciting if we end up with a butterfly!
