Transcript of The Monarch Butterfly

The Monarch Butterfly
The Monarch Butterfly is a very cool animal. The Monarch Butterfly is also known as Danaus plexippus. The way you can tell a female Monarch Butterfly from a male one is that male's have a swollen pouch on both of their hind wings. They are poisonous because of the food they eat which is milkweed.That's my description for Monarch Butterflies.
Monarch Butterflies have beautiful colors, and they have an amazing wingspan. That is why I chose this interesting animal.
Interesting facts
Monarch Butterflies are the most beautiful of all butterflies around the world. Their wings flap about 300 to 700 times a minute. Also Monarch Butterflies breath through a tiny opening on the side of their bodies called spiracles. Those are some of the most interesting facts about Monarch Butterflies.
San Diego has some very unique animals. I chose the Monarch Butterfly because I think they are very interesting.
What the Monarch Butterfly eats and where it's habitat is, is very interesting to me. Adult Monarch Butterflies gather nectar from plants to drink. They naturally only eat milkweed. They mostly live in tropical places. In the winter they will fly on the coast in Southern California and Central Mexico. In the spring and summer they will fly to open fields and meadows. That's the habitat and diet for Monarch Butterflies.
Thank you for reading my report on Monarch Butterflies. I hope you enjoyed it!
