  12. 12. The monarch butterfly is sometimes called the &quot; milkweed butterfly &quot; because its larvae eat the plant.  In fact , milkweed is the only thing the larvae can eat!  If you'd like to attract monarchs to your garden, you can try planting milkweed (if you live in the right area). Adult female monarchs lay their eggs on the underside of milkweed leaves . These eggs hatch, depending on temperature, in three to twelve days. The larvae feed on the plant leaves for about two weeks and develop into caterpillars about two inches long. After a while, the caterpillars attach themselves head down to a convenient twig, they shed their outer skin and begin the transformation into a pupa , a process that is completed in a matter of hours. The pupa resembles a waxy, jade vase and becomes increasingly transparent as the process progresses. The caterpillar completes the miraculous transformation into a beautiful adult butterfly in about two weeks. The butterfly finally emerges from the now transparent chrysalis. The butterfly waits until its wings stiffen and dry before it flies away to start the cycle of life all over again. Eastern populations in winter in Florida, along the coast of Texas , and in Mexico, and return to the north in spring . Monarch butterflies follow the same migration patterns every year. During migration , huge numbers of butterflies can be seen gathered together
