Chicken Nugget turned out to be a spicebush swallowtail, a caterpillar that turns yellow before transforming into a chrysalis.
A boy whose nickname is Oddity started documenting Chicken Nugget’s life in his own blog.
’I made a home for him and provided him with some music so that he could become a butterfly quicker,’ Oddity said.
’It was exciting to wait for Chicken Nugget to turn into a butterfly.’
The boy’s pet was a gynandromorph, an organism that has both male and female characteristics. That is why Chicken Nugget had unique wings:
one looked smaller than the other, and the coloration was different on both.
Oddity kept the butterfly in his home for one more day because his wings were not fully formed. The next day, he set Chicken Nugget free.
This beautiful story is worth sharing.
