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 to Insect Lore. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get a butterfly garden 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 a neck, each caterpillar undergoes a nearly 21-day metamorphosis, enshrouding itself in a cocoon before emerging as a colorful and winged pat of butter that can be released to socialize with other insects.
Alternatively, Groupon holders can opt to peruse Insect Lore’s online collection of other live insects, educational DVDs, games, and books, snatching the Fish in a Jiff hatching kit ($29.99) to care for United States–grown killifish eggs or an earthworm nursery ($24.99) to acquire an audience for incessant lullaby singing. The Grub Scouts sprinkler blasts water to cool off lawns ($19.99), and the bug grabber safely catches bugs and lets you release them humanely after you’ve learned their mother tongue ($11.99). Although shipping is not included in today's Groupon, items usually arrive within six to eight business days of purchase ($5.99 for standard shipping for items up to $19.99, $6.99 for items $20–$29.99). Items can also be expedited in two to three business days (a $15 additional fee) or by overnight delivery (a $25 additional fee).
