    • Introduction to Life Cycle of Butterfly
      • Metamorphosis is a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life of an animal. A butterfly goes though compete metamorphosis. Complete metamorphosis is defined as having four stages. Insects go through incomplete metamorphosis, which is defined as having three stages. an example would be the grasshopper .
