OMFG! I LOVE THE NAME DRIFT!!! His name is now Drift.

We aren't sure if he's dead or not, my dad found him on the sidewalk so we aren't positive a bird didn't drop him. I'm pretty sure he's not, but we'll know tonight/tomorrow morning if he's gonna be okay or not!

Awesome. I love caterpillars lol. Our wolly bears here have a yellow band though.

Make sure you let him go before he pupates!

If he's alive I'm going to release him when he becomes a moth. He has a better survival chance.

There's a good chance he will die during pupation if he is kept...

Cuz they tend to burrow deep into the soil and the temperature swings act as important signals for when to emerge, etc.

I think he's already dead so it doesn't really matter.

So an update....

I'm almost positive he's dead. When you tilt the glass he doesn't fall, but he hasn't moved. At all.

Fun.

And now my Betta is sick with something idk what it is.
