Describe the life cycle in a few words
Butterflies start as an egg and hatch into a caterpillar. Caterpillars then form a chrysalis and emerge as a butterfly. Butterflies typically live for 2 weeks to a month.
Life Cycle of a Butterfly
Metamorphosis: the process of transformation from one form to another, such as a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. Habitat: the natural home of a living thing, where it can find food, shelter, and other conditions necessary for life. Reproduction: the process by which living things make more of their own kind, either by laying eggs or giving birth.
What is the most interesting part of the life cycle?
A butterfly's life cycle has four stages - egg, larva, pupa, and adult. A butterfly's wings are covered in tiny scales that make them waterproof. A butterfly is able to sense changes in temperature and air pressure and use them to navigate.
