The first Butterpillar species...

The first batch of Butterpillars was added to my online shop today.  These are a purple striped, blue species and there are only 5 available in this colour.
Butterpillars are the result of my experimentation using Butterfly DNA. On attempting to give them human intelligence I somehow stopped the development to the 'fly' stage of their life. They do become beautifully patterned but never grow wings, and therefore never become Butterflies, they instead stay as Butterpillars. After an accident in the lab, hundreds escaped and I now spend most of my time trying to locate them and find them good homes.
Butterpillars are my third creation that I have transformed from plush to sculpt. These little critters have been hand cast from an original sculpt and each on is hand painted. These measure just under an inch tall and 1.5" wide.
