Emerging Butterflies

When butterflies are ready to emerge out of their chrysalis, it is helpful to have a container to accommodate this. It's always helpful to attach paper towel both to the sides and the bottom so that the butterfly's legs can attach itself easily.

It's also helpful to have a lid that is transparent so you can see the progess of the developing pupa. The photographs below show visual signs that pupae are developing into adult butterflies. The last several photos illustrate the types of emergence containers I use to emerge individual butterflies.
