Sample text

Do not touch the caterpillar, though. Throw away the old leaves and replace them with fresh ones. Put the new leaves on top of a clean, wet paper towel. You can leave the caterpillar on its original leaf. 5. If your caterpillar looks like it is sleeping, do not bother it! It may be ready to climb to the top of your cage, molt for the last time, and form its chrysalis. Then, about one to two weeks later, you are in for an amazing treat—the metamorphosis of your caterpillar into a butterfly! 6. After your butterfly emerges and its wings have had a chance to harden, take it outside in its container.
