      • Butterflies lay their eggs on the underside of leaves.
      • Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs only on the milkweed plant.
      • Eggs with hatch into larvae in about four days.
    • Stage 2- Caterpillar (Larvae)
      • When a caterpillar first hatches it is very small.
      • Monarch caterpillars eat only milkweed leaves.
      • The milkweed that the monarch caterpillars eat is poisonous. The poison stays in their bodies so that animals will not eat them.

      • The caterpillar hangs upside down and forms a silk cocoon from it’s old skin.
      • Inside the chrysalis the monarch forms wings and adult organs.
      • The pupa stage is two weeks.

    • The Great Migration
      • Monarch butterflies live across the country during the warm months (March-October).
      • When fall comes the butterflies begin to fly 2,500 miles south to Mexico or California.
      • Once they reach the warmer climate the butterflies hibernate. Their heart rate slows and they rest for the winter.
      • When spring comes the butterflies fly back to the areas they came from.
      Quit
    • Migration Map
      • Monarchs fly south for the winter.
      • During spring time the butterflies are on their way back from Mexico.
      • Once summer comes the butterflies are back to lay their eggs.
