Guy Finds Caterpillars In Tesco Broccoli And Raises Them Into Butterflies (Twitter Thread)

Spread the love

When finding some living creatures in fruits or vegetables purchased at the grocery store, most people would probably just ask for a refund. 

But British media personality, Sam Darlaston, had some other plans for the caterpillars he has found inside the broccoli he bought from a local Tesco store. 

After overcoming the first shock, he realized he had a new pet to enjoy during the lockdown.  

So, he decided to raise those caterpillars into butterflies and documented the whole process in an awesome twitter thread.

In case anyone is interested, the name we’ve gone with is Cedric, he’s from Spain (at least we assume so because the broccoli is) and he dances after eating spinach and broc all day long 🐛🐛🐛
