Meet Joey the Hornworm Pupa!

IMG_9276-001Eleven days ago, we introduced you to Joey the Tobacco Hornworm (link is here). Soon after his IMG_9283arrival, Joey went underground to pupate (link is here).

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.
