Upon the advice, a couple of years ago, from my BAMONA volunteer expert, I brought in a raspberry vine and a medium-sized caterpiggly. There were several small cocoons about, too.
Friday, August 14: popped it into the aquarium, it was going up and down the aquarium sides. I didn't know what it was doing. I nearly became sorry for it, and released it.
Saturday, August 15th: I'm glad I stuck to it, as it has now created a cocoon! We will wait patiently for it to emerge.
It is a moth of some sort...we'll see!
Then there were these!
I've seen one of these before!
Great Leopard Moth
Meanwhile, they sit in the aquarium, coming out at night to eat, going into the toilet paper rolls in the day to hide.
