Transcript of Metamorphosis - Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly

Forms of the butterfly The Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly is an insect with all four stages of the metamorphosis cycle: the egg, the larvae, the pupa and the adult.
Each stage of the cycle will include what they eat at that particular time and where they lived. Introduction Above is a picture of a females dark form The male butterfly of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly has one form which is yellow wings with black stripes at the front.
The female on the other hand has two forms, one which is called the light form, which looks just like the male except has a blue stripe at the bottom of its wings.
The other female form is called the dark form, which is dark wings but still keeping the blue stripe against the bottom.

Bibliography..................................................10 The Egg The Larvae The Pupa The Adult Bibliography The egg is the first stage of the metamorphosis cycle. It is first laid on a large leaf for the larvae (better known as the caterpillar) to feast upon.
Many eggs are layed on the one leaf for many predators like to eat the young creatures. as they get ready to hatch, the egg clears up and you can see the larvae growing inside of it.
The larvae inside the egg will hatch around two weeks after it is layed.
At this stage it eats nothing for it is unhatched hereby unable to even move. Websites The larvae, better known as the caterpillar,is a small colourful being, which is one of the first stages of the metaorphosis cycle.
When it hatches from its egg, it eats the leaf that it both lives on and was layed on. It eats the plant it hatched on for around 3 weeks, during that time it forms a defense mechanism to either hide itself or be protected from predators. it could be either the same colour as the plant to get disguised, very colourful to say "I'm pisonous", or it could have a spiny back to hurt the predators that try to eat them. The above picture is an example of the cycle from the larvae to the adult http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Papilio-glaucus http://www.thebutterflysite.com/life-cycle.shtml http://shelledy.mesa.k12.co.us/staff/computerlab/Butterfly_Egg.html The pupa is the larvae stuck between two completely different forms, the larvae and the adult (the caterpillar and the butterfly).
In order toget to this form, the larvae finds a safe place to hang itself upside down in the shape of a "J".
For around 2weeks it eats nothing, hanging upside down .
In this stage the pupa isn't able to eat anything. The butterfly, is the adult of this particular insect.
As it leaves its pupa stage it must hang itself upside down for around two hours. After it dries out, it flaps its wings, and flies away.
At this point of it's life, it eats nectar from flowers and it lives in fields. http://butterflies.heuristron.net/butterflies/gulf.html http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/wildflower/completebutterflydata.asp?id=6
