Look at me!

I've just hatched from a pinhead sized egg and I'm staying in here, in my little round pot with my new juicy leaf, cos there's giants out there!

The black hairy 'kego' hatchling is like a piece of black sewing cotton. The other silkworms are three weeks old. You can compare the sizes by looking at the dots in the kitchen paper they are both on. 'Kego' will increase in size 10,000 times in the next 4 weeks and get lighter in colour.
