We saved a monarch chrysalis from a folding chair on 12/22/22 by moving it to hang from a branch within a small netted enclosure which we kept outside but under a solid patio cover.
Though the standard time for this type of chrysalis stage is 10-14 days, we had no change at all for over 25 days.
1/22/23, I brought the enclosure inside the house and into a room where our kitty cat wouldn’t get to it. I expected metamorphosis within a day or two if the chrysalis was still viable.
This morning - 1/26/23 - I could tell the chrysalis was very close to eclosing so I moved one of our Wyze Outdoor cameras into the enclosure and set the timelapse settings. Because I wasn’t sure when it would eclose, I set the time lapse video to run for nearly 13 hours - the time I’d be away at work.
The video here is at 8:26 a.m. and was captured as an Event for this camera.
As you can see, the room was as secure as I had hoped!
