Well, first of all you need to know if it is a baby or not! If you bring it home or keep it in your garden and then the next day you find out it's turned into a butterfly than there was no point! DON'T put it in a box that has a lid because the caterpillar wouldn't like it. Try and make it feel comfortable as if it was in it's actual habitat.

Hope this helps! If it doesn't than sorry.

Can you keep a caterpiller as a pet?

I advise not to keep a caterpillar as a pet! They die very easily and surprisingly it needs much care. However if you do keep a caterpillar as a pet feed it plenty of fresh green leaves. If you do not notice your caterpillar has not eaten the leaves try a different kind; they do not eat every type of plant. Give it plenty of roaming areas and sticks to climb on. Make sure you are prepared for it to turn into a moth/butterfly! Mist it's housing with water very often [but not enough to drown it ;)] Do not handle it because they can often give away rashes. Make sure you are aware of your caterpillar's needs for it's specific type. I advise you look for it's kind on the Internet and learn about it's specific care needs, although I do not advise one as a pet! You may also lose interest in it very quickly! Hope this helps!
