what do ecpatheria scribonia eat and is water what they drink or do they drink sugar water.my five year old found this black fury fellow and we kept in for a few days and my daughter put a red fresh rose and some fresh green leaves along with a hanging fabrick strip that was wet with sugar water. five days in the care i decided to let the fury fellow go i felt bad that it was in a small invierment and it needed more space, so i put it out in the front yard of my home theres a great landscape with many plans trees and many differant flowers ,that was two weeks ago.Today is march 15 2008 i had left with my family for the day and when we got home this evening the fury fellow was climing up my front door . my family and i forgot all about the fury fellow. is he not suppose to be in the cold or is he just traveling around what can i do for fury fellow he also has gotten very large. fury is long and very wide around , as big as 2 & 1/2 inches in length. we like him will he become a butterfly .
