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.

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.

It can probably be hung outside somewhere sheltered. I'm not sure about catching and using other caterpillars.

The Giant is a larger size container for the butterflies.
