Yes they are. You have to pay an additional $5 to have the caterpillars and their food shipped to you.

I received five health caterpillars which morphed into five live butterflys. Three of my butterflys emerged a week after I put the cocoons into the butterfly garden and two followed about twelve hours later. I immediately put in fresh flowers from the yard and squirted the sugar water onto the flowers. I did this again about 12 hrs. later. The next morning I refreshed the flowers and repeated as the day before. The butterflys grew rapidly and because of an incoming storm and cooler weather, I released after 2 and 1/2 days. The butterflys immediately flew out of site. Butterflys migrate at very high attitudes so I am sure they are now enjoying a pina colata in warmer climes. This was a very rewarding experience for four generations of my family. I hope this helps.

I bought this as a gift for my niece, so I am not totally sure. I don't think live caterpillars come with the kit. It is my understanding that there is a certificate inside to be sent to have them shipped when the time is right.

After ordering your caterpillars, how long will it take to receive them in the mail?

I watched a youtube video about it and found it very helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt20TOkBCXY I used a safety pin and placed the flat side of the paper flush with the netting so the chrysalis hung down facing the inside of the enclosure.

They do not. I sent Insect Lore and e-mail and they told me they have corrected their coupon issues. I have not tried to redeem again. I ordered and paid full price, because this was birthday gift for a 6 year old and I wanted to have the caterpillers with the gift. I'm going to try to redeem again in the future.

This kit does not automatically come with the butterflies. You get a certificate to order the caterpillars when you are ready. Using the code in the box, there's a cost of $5 to ship the caterpillars. The butterflies are Painted Lady.
