The vibrant and colorful patterns on a butterfly’s wings provide camouflage from predators and distract children while they are being pickpocketed by other butterflies. Immerse yourself in the wonder of winged creatures with today’s Groupon from Insect Lore's online store. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get a butterfly garden shipped with live caterpillars (a $19.99 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of insect life and accessories.
Insect Lore’s butterfly garden arrives at doorsteps laden with three to five butterfly larvae, special butterfly food, a feeding kit, and instructions on care. Housed inside a pop-up netted habitat that can sit on a table or hang around your neck, each caterpillar undergoes a 21-day metamorphosis before your eyes, enshrouding itself in a cocoon before emerging as a colorful and winged pat of butter that can be released to socialize with other insects.
Groupon holders can also opt to peruse Insect Lore’s online collection of live insects, educational DVDs, games, books, and more. Nature lovers can get the Fish in a Jiff hatching kit ($29.99), to care for U.S.–grown killifish eggs as they mature during a six-week period, or hatch earthworms in the earthworm nursery ($24.99). The Grub Scouts sprinkler ($19.99) blasts water to cool off lawns, and the bug grabber ($11.99) safely catches bugs and lets you release them just as humanely after you’ve learned their mother tongue. Although shipping is not included in today's Groupon, items usually arrive within three to seven business days of purchase ($5.99 for standard shipping) but can be expedited in two to four business days ($20.99 for rush shipping) or next-day delivery ($30.99).
