Swallowtail Butterfly By: Sammie Bonick Where do they live? What's their habitat? Life Cycle... Movement Humans and Butterfly's Food Source Behavior/Adaptations The majority are tropical, but they also live on every continent except Antarctica. Habitats include-deserts, rainforests, lowland meadows and mountainous regions.
But it depends on what type of species of Swallowtail, they mostly live where both the caterpillars and adults food is plentiful. Complete metamorphosis Swallowtail caterpillars eat leaves and flowers of particular plants. Swallowtail butterflies sip nectar but also mud and sometimes manure. In earlier times many collectors collected Swallowtail butterfly's. The Birdwing butterfly was the largest so many collectors choose these for their farms or for collecting. In some places though they were considered pests, this happened in citrus orchards. They also collect pollen. Adults are only active during the day, but caterpillars can be active day or night. A few species migrate but its not very common.
Adaptions-example, the tiger swallowtail butterfly's wings look like a tigers face. Extras... Mouthparts Historical Significance State Insect?

There are 550 species, most are tropical, and only 30 are found in the US. The caterpillars have chewing mouthparts, this can do a lot of damage to plants. An adult mouthpart is a proboscis. It is used to suck out liquids like nectar. Proboscis is sort of a tongue. One belief is that the word butterfly came from the expression "butter-colored fly".

Some people say that when a butterfly lands on you it means good luck. In Chinese culture two butterflies flying together is a symbol of love.
