The Giant Swallowtail butterfly is our favorite here at the farm. These guys are very large, sometimes up to 6 inchs wide. The caterpillars look like bird droppings and the chrysalis looks so much like a wood stick its hard to tell it really is a butterfly chrysalis. Very Cool! These butterfly eggs are fun and educational to watch transform through metamorphosis into catapillars. All butterfly egg shipments must be next day air. Eggs should hatch with in one week.
Remember you must have Wild Lime for these caterpillars when they arrive as their food supply. They eat a lot, so be prepared. You may purchase your Wild Lime from us or from a local dealer. Caterpillars usually take from one to three weeks to reach pupation size depending on species.
