Cecropia Silkmoths and Giant Swallowtail Butterflies

 

Come check out our Cecropia Silkmoth hatchlings and Giant Swallowtails!

Our brilliantly colored Cecropia Silkmoths emerged from their cocoons and laid tons of eggs! Their hatchlings are munching on the fresh vegetation and will be growing a bit more each day. We also have two Giant Swallowtails that will transform from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly all witin a few months! Come and check out their enclosure in our MI Nature exhibit and learn about the amazing lifecycles these moths and butterflies have.
