Insect 2 #6

We were lucky enough to watch a mealworm emerge as a pupa.  It was an unforgettable experience. The mealworm slowly shed its skin.  First we thought it was simply molting as it had done before. But we quickly realized it was emerging with a different body. Its color was an opaque white, almost translucent. 

The caterpillars kept on growing and growing!
