Second Stage

  • During this stage the larva eats the leaves around it so it can grow.

  • As it grows it molts it skin many times and becomes a caterpillar.


Third Stage

  • As the caterpillar grows it full size it hangs upside down on a branch.

  • As it hangs the caterpillar becomes a pupa/chrysalis

  • During this time the pupa is transforming into a butterfly
