What does a Hairy Molly turn into?

The larval stage of the butterfly is called a caterpillar and their main purpose is to eat and grow. The commonly called “Hairy Molly” is one of the most familiar caterpillars; it is, in fact, the larvae of the small tortoiseshell butterfly (Aglais urticae).

How long does it take for a caterpillar to turn into butterfly?

First as an egg, then as a caterpillar, next as a pupa in its chrysalis, and finally, it emerges as a butterfly. This entire process takes about four weeks from start to finish; although the warmer it is, the shorter the cycle.
