I tried my first chrysalis move and butterfly came out crumpled. It is trying to flap its wings.
Butterfly looks active and is hanging on top of tent habitat as to be expected.
Butterfly was in smaller chamber with other cats and then pupa'd in small chamber.
I thought cat was large and healthy.
It had been in PUPA stage for at least 4 or 5 days. I believe it was two nights ago that I moved it. The pupa had not started turning dark yet.
Other cats were moved to tent before the J: move. And they came out fine.
I did a two inch accidental drop, was that enough to hurt butterfly. I laid chrysalis on edge for a few minutes as I applied a small dot of glue to the black stub.
Everything seems to have gone fine except for the small drop.
Any suggestions? Unfortunately, I don't have a mister sprayer since that is probably the next thing that I would try.
Thanks for suggestions.
I've tagged 35 butterflies so far in two days. This is the 1st one that has came out wrong.
