murdocha.jpgmurdochb.jpgmurdochc1.jpgI wish that this was Little Joe but it is not.  It is my friend’s pet whom he has affectionately named Murdoch.  In a day, he has seen Murdoch transform from a beautiful caterpillar, to a busy caterpillar and finally to a lovely green chrysallis.  This is what we hope to see with our own eyes.  So far Little Joe is continuing to eat and grow.  We have received some tips on caterpillar care that we are trying to implement.  Hopefully we’ll be seeing the real thing and not just pictures in the near future.
