8 Days Old

This is "Slinky" and he/she is now 8 days old. You can't tell whether they are male or female until they form their chrysalis. Growth is a bit behind this season and I believe it is due to the weather. Normally after 8 days they would be ready to form their chrysalis and as you can see, Slinky is barely larger than the grain of rice.
Yay! I love your caterpillar/butterfly shots!
