Butterflies attach their eggs to leaves with special glue.
Fully grown caterpillars attach themselves to a suitable twig or leaf before shedding their outside layer of skin to reveal a hard skin underneath known as a chrysalis.
Butterflies can live in the adult stage from anywhere between a week and a year, depending on the species.
Butterflies often have brightly colored wings with unique patterns made up of tiny scales.
Monarch butterflies are known for their long migration. Every year monarch butterflies will travel a great distance (sometimes over 4000 km), females will lay eggs and a new generation of monarchs will travel back, completing the cycle.
