You may recall that we found caterpillars in the backyard last week… two of them. We researched and discovered that they are Oleander caterpillars that only eat the leaves of the Oleander plant… go figure. Those little suckers eat and eat and eat (and poop… a lot!)… I went out to get some fresh leaves the other day and discovered the motherload! The tree was covered in the little guys (and gals). The kids were excited to say the least and went to grab their cameras. Of course, I grabbed mine too. I think the monkey boy would have stayed out there all day if I had let him. He was so fascinated. So… now we have caterpillars inside and outside to observe. Are you on the edge of your seat excited about all this… I know I am!


The Monkey Boy taking pictures. He said he would never erase them from his camera.


The hungry little caterpillar.


Caterpillars everywhere!!!


Aren’t these caterpillars some of the weirdest looking things you’ve ever seen.

Stay tuned to see what happens next in the Great Caterpillar Experiment.
