A Butterfly’s Diet

Butterflies use their tube like proboscis, which is a flexible and long tongue, to sip liquid food. Most butterflies live on the nectar of flowers, whereas others sip on the liquid from rotten fruits. Other butterflies prefer feeding on rotten animal bodies.

A Butterfly’s Life Stages

A butterfly goes through four different life stages. It starts its life as an egg laid on a leaf. The egg hatches a larva, that is the caterpillar and it feeds on leaves, molting many times as it grows. The larva then becomes a pupa; this is the stage at which it rests and the final stage is the stage of adulthood, were the pupa turns into an adorable flying adult.
