Actually that is a myth, the color depends on what the what the chrysalis is attached to, if its attached to a leaf or green plant it will be green, a tree branch piece of wood it will be brown. but they are beautiful to watch change as well

The swallowtails are so cool to watch change, too! If I remember correctly, if the Chrysalis is brown they hatch next spring and if it is green they will hatch before winter!!
