    Good butterfly cage
    Posted 1/1/2015 by ALLISON BURTON

    We got this to house a monarch butterfly caterpillar that we found in our backyard. The cage is big enough to fit a few branches and a food supply, although it is a bit tight trying to fit that in and get your hands in to clean it out or move things around. It is easy to open and close with the zipper, but it would be really helpful if the top unzipped more than just half-way around. We have not ordered the caterpillars that come with the cage - we are waiting until warmer weather in the spring - so I can't comment on how good that part of the package is. Overall, it was a great experience for my kids to be able to view the changing caterpillar easily from inside the cage, and for that I am very pleased with this item.

    My rating of Butterfly Garden
    Posted 9/16/2014 by Wilma Wilcox

    I purchased this "habitat" for a friend. I raise anise swallowtail butterflies. They lay their eggs on my anise and then we have caterpillars. I remove the caterpillars when they are about an inch long and stick them in the habitat with plenty of anise. They will turn to a crystalis and then in about 12-14 days we have a beautiful butterfly. As soon as the wings are opened, we release them to the outdoors. I have sent many crystalis's to the nearby schools for observation. All the traveling caterpillars and crystalis's are moved in this habitat.
