  2. How do butterflies reproduce? • If you see two adult butterflies with their abdomens linked tail-to-tail, they are mating. • The male grasps the female and deposits a sperm packet, which fertilizes the female's eggs. • The butterflies can fly while mating, but they usually avoid moving unless they are disturbed.

  3. How do caterpillars breathe? • There is an oval opening called a 'spiracle' on each side of each segment. • These are connected to a tube, the 'trachea.' • As the caterpillar moves, air is pumped into the trachea, causing oxygen to be taken in and carbon dioxide to be pushed out. • Caterpillars do not actually breathe as we do, but air is exhanged by the compression and extension of each segment.

  4. Why are some butterflies brightly colored and others are not? • Butterflies who might taste good to predators need to hide from • them therefore they may be camouflaged. • Butterflies that taste bad or are toxic to predators have no need • to hide. • These butterflies display bright warning colors as a way to remind • predators that they taste bad or are toxic. • Some butterflies also use their colors to attract mates.

  5. Why are butterflies important? • They are important as plant pollinators and at that, they are second only to the bees. • They are also very sensitive to the environment and thus are good indicators in assessing how healthy or unhealthy conditions we are living in. • They also have their own important place in the ecosystem like all animals do. • And of course the joy and the delight we can have from watching these beautiful creatures is priceless.

  6. What is the difference between butterflies and moths? • Butterflies are day-flying while moths generally fly at night. • However, there are moths that are active during the day that could easily pass for butterflies. • The best feature to look at is their antennae: Butterflies always have threadlike antennae that club tipped. • Moths can have many types of antennae: feathery, hairy, threadlike or filamentous, but without the clubbed tips.
