Great Learning Opportunity

We have raised caterpillars from Insect Lore every spring for the past 3 or 4 years. We have had a 100% success rate and really enjoy watching the process over and over...learning more as my daughter gets older. She is doing her first science fair project this year and it's all about butterflies!

I've always ordered through you so have no idea if the price is good, etc. but everything always comes quickly and in excellent condition.

Great for classroom and the kids love watching the process.

Very educational and awesome!

Our students love watching the caterpillars grow and change. They also love releasing the butterflies into our courtyard. They often think they see them again later!
