Taking silk moth rearing to the next level: SCIENCE
So I’m currently doing a research on how higher temperatures affect the growth of caterpillars. These are my results so far.
The bigger caterpillar was subject to high temps of 40C and low temps of 22C everyday, while the smaller ones were put outside and faced natural temperatures ( high 30C low 12C).
Both caterpillars are siblings, born at the same time.
So yeah…MASSIVE size difference.
