Nite! Nite!

"Nite! Nite!"

This is Lucky Jr. eating away at this common milkweed. He is named Lucky Jr. because he is lucky to be alive. 

I had a monarch caterpillar named Lucky, but he got sick and did not make it. So, I named this one Lucky Jr.

A head count is necessary when swapping out fresh milkweed for the little critters to make sure no one gets left behind. At this time, they were only two centimeters long. 
One caterpillar was missing and I had no idea where he was. I looked everywhere. I kept a container on my table to put all the old leaves in. There he was on a leaf!

He has his own milkweed plant and butterfly cage so when he becomes a butterfly, I can give him his special name.
