Our Fuzzy Friend

This is our new friend, a wooly bear caterpillar.

Zoe has them all over her yard and was nice enough to share one with us. He will turn into a moth in the Spring. We have had fun feeding him this fall.

We've been giving him grass and leaves to munch on. We even saw him take a munch out of a leaf one day. The leaf had a cute little mouth print!

Aubrey giving it some water.

Brooke had to try next.

I think he may be hibernating now. He hasn't moved for a few days so I am hoping he is hibernating and not dead! They hibernate during the fall and winter and then make a cocoon in the spring. I'm hoping we can see the whole process!
