luna moth cocoon????
My daughter found a cocoon on the ground, I brought it in and showed my hubby. We thought it was dead since it was on the ground so my hubby cut it open to see what was inside. It's large and brown.At first I still thought it was dead cause it didn't move so I laid it up on my counter and forgot about it. A few days later I accidentally bumped it and the thing went crazy. wiggling and twisting in the cocoon. So it is ALIVE.And seems to be getting stronger as the days go by. So far it hasn't died from the cocoon being cut open. What do I do with it. it's late march here and the weather is warming up and I read that it should be keep cool or something untill spring, well it's spring now so maybe it's alright but how do I care for it.what do I keep it in, do iI need to keep it moist. Anyone who has any advice PLEASE let me now. I feel responsible for it now,I hope I didn't damage it or hurt it from finishing it's metamorphosis.
