Butterflies

Description

The butterfly is an insect that goes through metamorphosis, and it goes through big changes. In this movie, you’ll see how a caterpillar grows and transforms into an adult butterfly or moth. First, an adult butterfly lays eggs. Then a caterpillar or larva hatches from the egg. The caterpillar turns into a pupa, or chrysalis, and then becomes an adult butterfly! In this movie, you'll also learn about the parts of this insect, including the wings, antenna, and proboscis. You’ll find out how butterflies can use camouflage to stay safe, or use bright colors and patterns to scare animals away.
