Found This This Morning
Hi Daniel,
I woke up this morning to find “Gary” (as my daughter affectionatly named him) in this state. How long can we expect him to be like this? Thanks for the speedy response!

Hi Jill,
Nice to see that your Ficus Sphinx Caterpillar, Gary, has metamorphosed into a pupa. There are several generations per year in warm climates, so we would guess that Gary would emerge as an adult moth in about a month. Many Sphinx Moths pupate underground, but the Ficus Sphinx pupates among leaf litter.
