Sleeping Larva

by Brenda
(Long Beach Ms)

Do larva sleep during the day and night? This is our first week of experiencing and watching the butterfly larvae eating on parsley in an enclosed area. They have more than doubled in size in two days. They are the swallowtail.

Karen says:
The larva rest, sometimes for many hours, before they molt, or shed its skin. I hope you continue to enjoy watching the miracle happen!
