Watch caterpillars change into butterflies right before your eyes with our award-winning butterfly kit! Raise 5 Painted Lady butterflies while learning all about metamorphosis. See the caterpillar's transition as it matures, changes into a chrysalis, and finally emerges as a Painted Lady butterfly!
Includes reusable habitat, mail-in certificate for 5 butterfly larvae with special food, and complete instructions. Three butterflies are guaranteed to be perfect specimens. Please allow approximately 3 weeks for your larvae to develop into adults. Ages 4 & up. PLEASE NOTE: There is an additional $3 shipping fee that you must send in with your certificate. This is a new requirement by the caterpillar supplier and is beyond our control. We will continue to make every effort to keep our kits at the lowest price possible.
Available only in the Continental U.S. and Alaska; not available in Hawaii, Canada or elsewhere.
Once you mail in your certificate for caterpillars, please allow 2 weeks to receive them. Butterflies should not be released outdoors unless average daily temperatures are at least 65 degrees. We encourage you to keep the butterflies indoors rather than releasing them. It's a great way for kids to learn about the biology of the entire life cycle!
