Hi Peter!

Well it was really a great job feeding them!
Lots of leaves on brushes!
Is was fantastic see them growing from tiny caterpillars till big "monsters" with 10cm!
I have pictures of their four stages of development.
I saw them making their cocoons too!
This specie could stay on pupa's stage for two years!
I have 5 to born yet and I think that they should do it only next year.

My best regards
