Rearing a pair of Woolly Bear caterpillars.

16

I have taken to rearing a couple Woolly Bear caterpillars ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrrharctia_isabella ) and Wilbur The Woolly Bear ( or Wilma, they are sort of hard to tell apart hehe ) and I would love to say hello to all of our new friends ! I did endeavor to get a portrait of both but once these little critters start a’ scurryin’ they are off like a shot. If you want to see their cute little caterpillar crawl there are some extremely adorable videos on youtube, I might even get around to making one myself :)

    We should hijack all the posts we can and see if we can get #DualChris trending.

    I have never thought of them wooly things as cute before either. This one looks so fluffy and cuddly. Hehe. Beautiful close up, Rachael.

    +Chris Mallory. Wilbur was so flattered that you noticed his hair do :D I'm glad you like the picture too. Henry was easier to photograph though, because he had a lighter complexion. These darn woolly bears are just too cute not to try :). Oh dear, I've become a "caterpillar lady" haven't I lol
