ITEM #405a
Add to Wishlist

This kit includes a 12 inch mesh habitat and a coupon that you submit when you are ready to receive your 5 caterpillars.

Watch furry caterpillars grow into colorful, lively butterflies, then set them free. This butterfly kit makes it possible to study the caterpillar's transition as it matures, changes into a chrysalid, and finally emerges as a Painted Lady butterfly. Up-close observation and active participation ensure that this project will help you grow brand new wings of learning!

The Butterfly Garden includes:

  • A  coupon for 5 caterpillars that you submit to the butterfly farm when you are ready to receive your caterpillars. 3 out of every 5 larvae are guaranteed to become butterflies. (Please note that the caterpillar farm requires submission of a $7.95 shipping/handling fee at the time that you submit your coupon to them via mail / fax / or on line.  Allow 1-2 weeks for processing and shipping your caterpillars. Your caterpillars will arrive with nutrient and feeding materials.)
  • A 12" mesh enclosure made of super-see-through mesh perfect for butterfly viewing. The reusable habitat stands on a table or hangs from its handy Velcro carry handle.
  • Fun-filled fact guide
  • Detailed instructions 

Many customers ask us why they are purchasing a kit that contains a coupon instead of receiving their caterpillars directly from Nature-Watch. Like most educational supply companies, we are not experts at breeding the butterfly larvae. Instead, we work with a butterfly farm that specializes in raising and shipping the caterpillars. This ensures that when you receive your caterpillars you will be able to see a complete butterfly metamorphosis.  We hope this helps explain why you need to take the additional step of mailing your coupon to redeem your caterpillars.
