during summer camp, my kids raise monarch caterpillars.i do this for a lot of reasons…1. because girls can be science driven and like bugs 2. to demonstrate the smallest animals need care 3. the canary in the coal mine effect. This is my first hatching. i still don’t know if it is a boy or a girl – she/he hasn’t spread her wings yet. once she/he does, i will update in the comments.
just like in humans, boys have balls. tee hee hee.
UPDATE: It’s a girl. I named her Evelyn.
