Original Butterfly Garden With 2 Live Cups of Caterpillars


Availability: In stock

Due to excessive heat, Insect Lore will ship orders Monday to Wednesday ONLY. We strongly urge customers to choose FedEx Overnight or FedEx 2 Day Shipping to ensure the safe delivery of their insects during this heat wave. The new shipping schedule will be in place during the hot summer months to prevent our insects from languishing over the weekend in an overheated postal facility.
Since temperatures have been over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, please allow us 24 to 48 hours to make a judgment on shipping. We are doing our best to ensure the safety of our insects and get them to you as quickly as possible. If you have a special shipping request, we will be happy to accommodate you! Please call our Customer Service Team at 1-800-548-3284.

Identical to the Original Butterfly Garden, but with more caterpillars!

When 5 caterpillars just aren't enough, you can choose the Original Butterfly Garden With 2 Cups of Live Caterpillars. This kit is identical to our signature Original Butterfly Garden in every way, except you will receive 10 caterpillars rather than the usual 5.

Original Butterfly Garden With 2 Cups of Live Caterpillars Includes:

  • 11.5" Tall Reusable Pop-Up Habitat (folds flat when not in use)

  • Super clear mesh to enable up close butterfly viewing

  • Feeding Pipette

  • Caterpillars to Butterflies Instruction Guide

  • 2 cups of 5 live caterpillars - that's 10 caterpillars in total!

Enjoy this family and classroom favorite, from the Original-Butterflies-By-Mail Company!

Your caterpillars arrive with all the nutritious food and moisture they need to grow into gorgeous Painted Lady Butterflies. Watch them eat, spin silk, and grow to 10 times their original size! When your caterpillars have finished growing and develop into chrysalides, move them to the airy butterfly habitat and watch for the magical moment of emergence. Then observe and feed your butterflies until it is time to let them fly away. 

Shipping: Live caterpillars are shipped to destinations within the Continental USA and Alaska. We cannot ship live caterpillars to Hawaii.

Manufacturer Recommended Age: 4 and up with adult supervision.

My daughter & I have been raising butterflies & lady bugs for years & we love it! Can't wait to share with her pre-school class this year. We're planning on raising Praying Mantis this year and are interested in Dragon Flies as well.
