We checked in Joey this morning — he’s living at DeKorte Park’s Center for Environmental and Scientific Studies (the building with the observatory) — and he is tucked away in his homemade sleeping bag (photo above).
We also have a new Tobacco Hornworm (above), just 4 centimeters long. We have not named him. Someone suggested George Alexander Louis, but that’s probably a better name for a Monarch caterpillar.
Any suggestions for a name? So far, we have “Chester.” Leave a comment below.
