I need some help with my caterpillar. I have two young caterpillars which hatched a while ago and I have one big one that doesn’t want to eat.
He/she stopped eating 5-6 days ago which I know because I always take the bad leaves out and put the new ones back in. Anyway there are no pieces of frass (excrement) or any bite marks. Sometimes I look for them and they will be under the soil and this started after they moulted. The little guy turned a darker colour then he/she turned back.
I'm wondering if the cap on its face is still on stopping them from eating or even losing their memory as I have heard that can happen. I'm really worried about it. I want to do whatever I can do about it and know what it is. Also he is too small to be turning into a butterfly.
