Murray Has Wings

Murray's Wings

It is the end of  day 10 and the pupa is darkening. You can clearly see Murray’s wings through the pupa case.

Most often, the adult should begin emerging at day 10. However, Murray can develop in his pupa for a little while longer because the temperature in the house is cool. Soon the pupa will turn much darker (that is his body showing through).

When Murray is ready, the emerging process will not take very long. The pupa will split releasing the adult.

To say that I am excited is an understatement!
