About This Animal
- Butterflies taste with their feet.
- Most butterflies only live for about 10 days as
- WHY SO MANY COLORS?: There are so many
kinds of butterflies, that they have to be color coded in order to
recognize each other for mating season, and also their colors send
messages to other animals such as "Don't eat me! I'm poisonous!".
A butterfly's colors comes from the scales of its wings so be careful
not to touch them: the scales rub off easily.
found this picture somewhere and really enjoy it. I don't know
who took it, but it's nice.
