I just wanted to share a little story whose chapters with me have ended this morning.

Last month I was at the grocery store looking to buy some iceberg lettuce (tacos!). I was picking through the lettuce when I spied a caterpillar in one of them!

This actually isn't the first time I have seen a caterpillar in heads of lettuce though. A few years back I was de-leafing some lettuce when I found a caterpillar inside. I kept him in a jar until one morning I woke up because there was a moth trapped flying in my room. I let the moth go to find the cocoon in the jar empty and realized it was the caterpillar.

So I picked up the head of lettuce and carefully placed it in my cart with every intention to take him home and let him do his thing. This time around though I would be more observant and keep a kind of record of him. Being that I have a 4 year old daughter I thought it would be an awesome idea to show her how the caterpillar would go though metamorphosis.

He did his thing, and as I suspected he became a moth. His funny face greeted me in the jar this morning and he was subsequently released.

So allow me to share his picture story with you.

This was really more a instagram record (so the photos are taken with my phone) and if you're on instagram his hastag was "#intermarchecaterpillar". Long I know, but he was named for the store where I found him (intermarche).

For the non-instagrammers I made a facebook album which you can view here (you don't need facebook in order to view the images).

It took him about a month to do his thing. I found him January 2 and released him this morning. I never really managed to find him a name, but I had a friend who kept saying he was Mothra, so I just went with that in the end. I have, thus, just unleased Mothra upon the world.

(PS: in so finding my public facebook profile, you can feel free to friend me if you like, just let me know who you are from the forum please Happy )

I love it! I remember when you first told me about finding him in the lettuce :3 What did your little say about the process?

The spawn was all excited at first, but during his time as a cocoon she got bored. When I saw him as a moth this morning I woke her up to show him to her before releasing him and she really didn't seem to care, though could be because I woke her up LOL. Too bad!
