Black Swallowtail Chrysalis Twitching
I've never raised black swallowtail butterfly caterpillars before and yesterday two of the chrysalis were twitching like crazy. I thought for sure they might emerge but no, and unfortunately I've lost track of how long they've been in their chrysalis stage. Does anyone out there have any experience with this? Thanks!
Sometimes there is some movement of the chrysalis (I don't know if I have seen "twitching like crazy" though). With the black swallowtail, you can sometimes see a very faint sign of the butterfly inside the chrysalis shortly before it emerges. Hope this helps. Anybody else had this experience?
