    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Ya, I put it in a small plastic jar to show the PCO on Friday.
    It really freaked me out to see it during the day.
    It is abit longer than 5mm so probably 1 stage before adult?
