I started with 13 caterpillars which I found on one of my plants. Sadly, only 5 butterflies survived (lost some to lizards and ants).The caterpillar looks pretty menacing, but, these spikes actually feel like little soft rubber tips.. they do not sting..and the little orange thing on his head is because i startled it..he then retracts it when he is calm..Today was amazing because I released all of them
