I decided to raise these five caterpillars that were feeding on my grapevines…So I purchased a cheap aquarium and collected the Cats from the vine.
I then fed them new grapevine leaves each day for about a week…They one by one burrowed underground..about 6 to 8 days later they finaly pupated.
This is the results of my 2 week experiment with these catepillars.

We are positively thrilled to post your photos documenting the metamorphosis of the Achemon Sphinx. Your project should inspire our readers to attempt a similar endeavor in order to learn more about the creatures around us.
Your photos are quite nice, and we especially like the image of the caterpillar of the Achemon Sphinx.
