New egg and new caterpillar set up

The HUGE female laid an egg today! This is exciting, hopefully she lays more tomorrow. Here is the egg:

A few of the caterpillars are getting large now and starting to seriously defoliate the live tree I have for the female to lay eggs on.

So I have relegated the three biggest to a smaller cage with fresh clippings. I left the other 3 medium-large caterpillars and the 7 small caterpillars on the live plant under under the heat lamp to help them grow faster (insects grow quicker in warm environments).
