I have raised a few of these cats to butterflies for my children to see the entire process. I hope you enjoy the photos. I love your website.

Hi Karen,
Wonderful contributions like your metamorphosis images of a Ruddy Daggerwing, Marpesia petreus, help to make our website interesting.  The caterpillars of the Ruddy Daggerwing feed on the leaves of figs.
