Monarch Chrysalis question

16 years ago

I have what appears to be a mal-formed chyrsalis. It is very bulbous compared to all the others. I have raised about 100 Monarchs this year and have never seen a chrysalis this shape. Do I destroy it?

Also, two chysalids fell to the bottom of the cage as they were forming. I saw it happen to one. It was just wiggeling so hard it twisted right off it's silk pad. Do I let it go at the bottom of the cage with a stick and a towel or do I destroy these?
