I know this is an old thread, and there might be a new one going, but I remembered posting in this one so.... I'll just add to this thread:
We have a cute desktop fan that we use every day to move the air to supplement the a/c when the afternoon sun heats up this room. Today was overcast so we weren't feeling the heat until just a little while ago.
This is what I found when I went to turn the fan on
Yep. This is a newly eclosed Monarch butterfly INSIDE the fan, hanging from the shell of a chrysalis it had attached to the inside roof of the fan box.
We keep the Monarch rearing containers on this table, and we did lose a 5th instar caterpillar a week or so ago.... Did I say we use this fan EVERY DAY?
We've unplugged the fan so there wont be any accidents, and tomorrow, we will be disassembling the fan.
