One Black Pupa: This is the pupa, of the Giant Leopard Moth. When it first became a pupa, there was a clump of black setae, on one end of this pupa. At 4:00 p.m., on Dec. 27, 2017, I removed the top, from this new rearing chamber, and I saw that the clump of black setae, fell off. These are two photos, of this black pupa, with the clump of black setae, removed from one end of this black pupa. The color of this pupa, is black. There is also two spines, on the same end, as this clump of black setae, used to be. Once the clump of black setae is gone, now you can see the two spines.
I am now trying to rear, three Giant Woollybear Caterpillars, and to watch them change, into three, beautiful moths, inside my new rearing chamber.
I am showing, two, close up photos, of this black pupa, without its clump of black setae, attached to one end. Now you can see the two spines, on the same end, as the black setae, used to be.
