  2. The Life Cycle Which came first, the egg or the adult? Of the Butterfly Begin

  3. Stage 1 The Egg • Butterfly eggs differ from one to another. Sometimes the adult lays one egg, other times they lay hundreds of them. The egg can range in color from green and red, to yellow or brown. The eggs can be long and oval like a pickle, or can be flat and round like a pancake.

  4. Stage 2 The Larvae or Caterpillar • The larvae is what comes from the egg. The larvae does not look like a butterfly. It looks more like a worm-known as a caterpillar. The caterpillar grows larger by molting its skin several times and eating large amounts of food. This stage takes from two weeks to one month to complete.

  5. Stage 3 The Pupa • Stage 3 begins when the caterpillar enters a chrysalis, or cocoon known as the pupa. The pupa does not eat during this stage, but does grow wings, legs and internal organs. It may take just four days or up to several months to complete this stage.

  6. Stage 4 The Adult • When the adult breaks out of the pupa, it is a beautiful butterfly. The new adult butterfly is immediately ready for reproduction. The life span of a butterfly lasts from just a few days up to 12 months. Can you put the stages in order?. Need more review?
