I am new at raising (is that even the right word?) black swallowtail butterflies.
I currently have both those caterpillars and monarch cats in separate aquariums. I'm going to blame the fact that I don't recall how long my swallowtails have been in the chrysalis stage on that fact ~ I've been busy!
Here's my question. Yesterday two of my swallowtail chrysalis were twitching ~ practically jumping on the stick. Yay, I thought: butterflies! But no, nothing happened and now my sister suggested they may have been parasitized.
Does anyone have any experience with this situation?
