July 25, 1/4" long -- I had to crop the photo to compensate for all the bad areas. Shame on me for waiting until after dark to photograph Muncher on the porch. I had to use my headlamp.
July 27, 3/8" long -- does that mean 1/16" per day? I'll have to graph growth once this is over. Hooray for me to remember that I should take a picture before the sun went down. Also yay for using the same ruler every time. That's the scientist in me.
Muncher is still not consuming entire leaves in one day. And my oldest and I were talking about how we wouldn't know the sex of the monarch until it was an adult. Maybe there are markings on the larva's side or legs to distinguish male from female.
