The baby monarch caterpillar I found is now a chrysalis, along with the Wildscape guys.
When they emerge, they may be the last monarchs to migrate.
They are hanging on to a silk web by a Cremaster-hook.
I gently moved the first chrysalises and repositioned them. They must be hanging upside down and with enough space to fully open their wings. If they dry with wrinkled wings, they do not survive.

Before they detach, they must pump to inflate their wings. You prob know all this!
