nature study gets gross

One of our newer caterpillars disappeared. We can't find him anywhere. Yes, that means there's a dead caterpillar somewhere in my house. Ewwwwwwww #1.

The little one that hatched out of the egg also died - not sure why. So I had to pitch another dead caterpillar. Ewwwwwwww #2.

Hungry and Feed-Me molted. I wouldn't have known this if I had not checked on them when I did, because they both promptly ate their old skin. Ewwwwwwww #s 3-27. So far. I am sure there will be many more ewwwwwwwws to come before I get over it. Plus, I think they molt a few more times. Something to look forward to.
