Too much sausage, not enough casing.
After five days, the silkworms have grown SO much! Their heads are the same size as they were before, but now the heads look tiny on their thick bodies. The bodies look like they’re over-stuffed – like too much sausage stuffed into not enough casing.
At this scale, the head is about the same size as the other one. See how much it’s grown?
This one looks like it’s getting ready to shed its skin. This process involves a day of rest, followed by shedding the face mask and the full skin for a larger, looser one.
Wow! Happened to notice you are publishing again! thanks…these pictures are wonderful – looking forward to keeping up with this year’s progress in silk making!
