Future gypsy moths! From each yellowish egg mass, 500-800 caterpillars will hatch. How cute!

If I take Paul's advice and put the rock up on eBay, I'll need to find more glamorous photos, and add a few clever marketing phrases. "Pre-larvae-stage caterpillar habitat, no extra charge! Transformer-like pets for the kids!"

*OK, one guy.
