    HI,
    I have one caterpillar in a bucket with leaves. I’ve called it Merlin. Merlin has been eating, pooing, and growing for three days. Then for a day has done nothing but loll about. No eating, pooing, nothing. Merlin’s about 4cm long.

    Can anyone advise me on what may be happening, or what I can do to revitalise Merlin? Please email juliegraceclifton@gmail.com, or call 027 9363 943

    Thank you!

    Hi Julie I’ve emailed you. I suspect Merlin is about to shed his skin … just leave him alone … handling them when in that metabolic state can end very badly for him. cheers and good luck
