Buckeye Butterfly Caterpillars-Junonia coenia
Availability: Usually ships the next business day
Item #: buckeye-caterpillars
Regular Price: $2.00

The Buckeye caterpillar is a wonder to watch and learn about the metamorphosis process. Watch these Buckeye caterpillars grow from a tiny worm-like caterpillar to a large brown and gray chrysalis. Then emerge into a beautiful brown butterfly with what looks like large eyes on the wings.

These Buckeye larvae are very colorful and voracious feeders and full of energy. Please remember to have Ribgrass for these caterpillars when they arrive. You may purchase your Plantain from us or from a local dealer. Caterpillars usually take from one to three weeks to reach pupation size depending on species, temperature and amount of food available.

All caterpillar shipments must be next day air (No exceptions)

This butterfly can only be shipped within the state of Florida.
