Fuzzy Wuzzy

Fuzzy Wuzzy (in this case) is not a bear!image Emma found a banded woolly bear caterpillar a couple weeks ago and we decided to keep him as a ‘pet.’ We’re hoping to see him turn into a moth. The nice thing is he’s very easy to care for. We put him in a gallon-size clear jar with a rubber band holding a piece of cloth around the top. We put a couple sticks and some fresh grass in the jar too. All he needs is fresh grass every day.

Emma came to me all horrified one morning thinking he was dead. It turns out he had just knit his cocoon around himself so now we’re waiting to see if he makes it to the moth stage. Fun!

Giant Woolly Bear Caterpillar Discovered

  • We call them wooly worms here. Do you know what the “wooly bear” will turn into?


  • Yep, it turns into a white moth with black spots. I hope it makes it to that stage!
