Aw I'm sorry. :c When I had mine, I kept them in a glass box type thing (sort of a mini terrarium) in our shed. (And I'd take their temporary home outside in the daytime). At the bottom, I had several inches of dirt, dead maple (and oak) leaves on top. This might help you: http://www3.islandtelecom.com/%7Eoeh...tiidaecare.htm

So my first woolly bear caterpillar was dead, he started decomposing >>' But he was dead before I got him, probally dropped by a bird. RIP little dude, who I need to name.

BUTTT. Happy happy news, I FOUND A NEW LITTLE GUY! He was just marchin' along in our sun room/cat room! Luckily the cats didn't notice him at all! So I scooped him up in a jar to save him. He's alive and well, he was so active and reacted to me touching him and now he's 'playing dead.' He would go on his hind legs like a mini dinosaur all 'RAWRRRR.' Haha I love him already. It took me forever to get him out of one jar and into another and off the table! He can apparently suction to things.. His name is Drift, like I was going to name the last one. He will be getting a terrirum if I haven't said that already!

Update 9/30/13- He moved last night! He was hiding under a piece of lettuce this morning haha. I had him moving around my hand this morning as well, and I put him under a leaf back in the jar and then he moved again to munch on some lettuce...I hope he's actually eating and not just laying on it..
