How Long Does It Take a Monarch Caterpillar to Turn in to a Monarc Butterfly?

Answer

When a monarch butterfly is about 2 inches long, it will stop eating and find a place on which to pupate. The caterpillar will then form a chrysalis. About 10-12 days after the chrysalis forms it will become transparent and a damp adult butterfly will emerge. The butterfly should be able to fly as soon as it's wings are dry.
