Our cocoons are getting all snug in their habitat :)

Today France class carefully transferred their butterfly cocoons into their new habitat.IMG_8490 IMG_8492








Everyone held  their breath as we opened the butterfly cup lid to take them out. One of the cocoons felt threatened as we were moving it and it began to shake and vibrate. Cocoons vibrate to scare away predators or other bugs and insects in the wild!!

After they calmed down we attached the paper they were stuck to onto the side of the habitat and placed tissue under them in case they fell down. Now all we have to do is wait 7-14 days before they hatch!!
