Transcript of Butterflies

As a butterfly age the color
of their wings fade and gets ragged. 1 Like all insects
butterflies have
six jointed legs,
three body parts,
one pair of antennae,
compound eyes,
and an exoskeleton. A butterfly is a lepidoptera,which
means they have scaly wings.
The scales of the wings are colorful and
are placed in overlapping rows.
In a butterfly's wings,there are veins that
supports the wings and nourish them with
blood. A butterfly's wings Flight of a butterfly 2 3 4 Butterfly metamorphisis A butterfly goes in a process called
metamorphosis or, a cycle in
which the larva looks nothing
like the adult. 1-egg
4-adult Butterfly migration Needs of a butterfly Like always every living thing needs food and water.The sources of food for butterflies are nectar and juice from rotting fruits,but some butterflies,such swallowtails,sulfurs,and blues don't just
depend on nectar alone.They need minerals.These minerals can be found in a puddle of water,which is a drinking source for a butterfly,or in a mud puddle.For shelter,butterflies prefer shady places like bushes and trees,so they can keep warm on cloudy days. When butterflies migrate,they make an incredible journey from Canada,across the United States to Mexico.Scientist and people are not really sure how they migrate that far and not get lost.Some think that they're recognizing landmarks,following streams,or even following the sun. Defense techniques Butterflies develop many interesting ways to
defend themselves.For example,some camouflages,or
blend in,to their surroundings,while others are filled
with toxic chemicals.These butterflies are often
brightly colored.Overtime,predators learn to associate
their bright colors with the bad taste of the chemicals. Population and range of butterflies The population of butterflies are not
known since there are about 17,500
species of butterflies spread throughout the world.In Earth,butterflies are found worldwide except in the on the continent of Antarctica. Parts of a butterfly Poisonous butterflies are slower
than non-poisonous butterflies.
The fastest butterflies can fly to about
30 mph. or faster,but slow butterflies can fly to
about 5 mph.To fly, a butterfly's temperature has
to be above 86 degrees.In cool weathers,butterflies
sun themselves. http://www.defenders.org/butterflies/basic-facts Where I Found my Sources http://www.thebutterflysite.com/facts.shtml 1.Butterflies can only see red,yellow,and green. 2.The butterfly that has the longest life span is
