Our Latest Pet: Tobacco Moth

Tobacco Moth

I can't say that I'm too happy about keeping a caterpillar as a pet. It's sort of like a fish from the county fair. The kids must have it but then who has deal with cleaning the tank and feeding it. ME! So now, in addition to two fish (one from this summer's fair), we have a VERY BIG caterpillar. It's container got pretty smelly and I threatened to release it if someone didn't clean it out. It's clean and back on our eating table. It's interesting to watch him grow despite the extra animal to deal with (and I include my children in the count). Not sure what's going to happen when it turns into a huge moth. I guess I'll find out soon enough. I'm obviously not ready for a dog yet.
