Life Cycle of a Butterfly


شارك من خلال

Our topic for today is Life Cycle of a Butterfly
A butterfly lays eggs on the leaves of a plant
These eggs hatch and young ones called larvae or caterpillars come out of the eggs
The caterpillar starts feeding on the leaves and starts to grow
It sheds its skin several times so that it can grow
Once the caterpillar is big enough it stops eating
It then forms a protective layer around itself
This stage is called chrysalis or pupa
The caterpillar remains motionless in the cocoon for about 10-15 days
Inside the cocoon the caterpillar undergoes a series of changes
After about 15 days a beautiful adult butterfly emerges out of the cocoon
These series of changes in the life cycle of a butterfly is called metamorphosis
