Thanks for the feedback!
Overwintering eggs hatch early in the season, then the caterpillars start eating like crazy and building their tent. they become fully grown by late spring or summer, and …during the growing process they can actually eat every leaf from a tree, so that the tree must redevelop all of its leaves.Once the caterpillars are grown they wander off and hide themselves in well protected places such as a piece of tree bark laying against rock.There they spin silken cocoons for themselves, then moths emerge from those cocoons in a few weeks.
What exactly is the inside of a caterpillar made out of?
The silk comes out of their mouths, and they're constantly in motion while they're weaving their cocoons.
we just got the bugville butterfly house, and our caterpillars (painted lady) stayed in their cocoons for 12 days. it really depends on the type of caterpillar. hope this help…s. Lissa
They moult so that they can be a butterfly.They also go through a metamorphasis,which is a chemical reaction in their bodies.
If you leave it there, and nothing else comes along and eats it, then eventually the bottom of the cocoon opens up and a moth or a butterfly struggles out. It sits in the air …for a while drying out, then it flys away. If it's a moth, it lays eggs, never eats, and dies.
Caterpillars do not come out of cocoons. Caterpillars make a cocoon and then come out as moths. Butterflies make chrysalis. Cocoons are made of silk and butterfly caterpill…ars do not do this.
No some moths go on the ground and most caterpillars hang upside down and some stay on the ground
There is nothing you can do to help a caterpillar, unless it is not in a proper envoirnment. It is in a stage where you do not do any work. The caterpillar does.
it turns into mush or gel and forms into the butterfly
Your caterpillar has a few stages before it'll die or go into a cocoon when it's dying it sit in one spot for days. when it's getting ready to go into a cocoon it'll walk arou…nd and eat and seem more lively then ever. Your caterpillar is growing up he isn't changing colors he's shedding his hair (which means he will within this week go into a cocoon)
Anywhere! A cocoon is a silk 'sleeping bag' that some species of moths make. Inside the cocoon, the caterpillar changes into a pupa. From the pupa emerges the adult moth. A ca…terpillar may travel over 100' before it selects a spot to make its cocoon. Some species normally make their cocoons in trees, such as the Polyphemus Moth. Others sometimes make their cocoons in the leaf debris at the base of their host tree, like the Cecropia moth.
They usually turn white if they are infertile and black if they are fertile. It can also be the extra dead skin.
well they turn into them well they are full and then they digest it and then they poo it out and then comes there colour and then boom they comes a butterfly
