Watching a fantastic live butterfly emerge from its chrysalis is a wonder of the natural world that few people get to experience. The Butterfly Skye’s Amazing Butterfly Chrysalis Kit gives everyone the opportunity to have a close up look at a fascinating butterfly. Your chrysalis kit comes with a unique, see through Emergence Enclosure, complete instructions and a beautiful butterfly chrysalis (or a mail order code to order your chrysalis at a later date).
A $15 fee will apply at the time you order your live butterfly chrysalis whether this will be with your kit or via mail order.
This isn’t just a gift, but a unique and memorable experience
- The species of butterfly that you receive is subject to availability. When your chrysalis kit arrives it will have information about the species of butterfly that is inside as well as full instructions
- After a few days, the chrysalis will start to change colour. Keep a close eye on the chrysalis because the butterfly is getting ready to come out
- Once the chrysalis changes colour, it is normally only 1-2 days before the butterfly will emerge
- When the butterfly comes out of its chrysalis, its wings will be crinkled and very small. Do not touch the butterfly during this time, you will damage it’s wings
- The butterfly will hang upside down and pump fluid from its body, into its wings (just like if you were to blow up a balloon)
- While the butterfly is inflating its wings, red fluid may come out of it. This is not blood; it is fluid that the butterfly is using to pump up its wings. This is normal
- The wings will then harden so that it can fly. This is when you can take your butterfly outside and release it into your garden!
- Please note- butterflies are cold blooded and so the temperature outside will need to be above 20˚C before you can release the butterfly
You can purchase replacement chrysalis for your Butterfly Chrysalis Kit, so you can have this experience over and over again.
