Butterfly life cycle online diagramThe life cycle of a butterfly begins with eggs that hatch into caterpillars. Caterpillars are living creatures that feed on vegetation. They have several legs that help that through muscular movements to move really fast. For protection, some caterpillars are covered in fur that will make your skin itch if a strand of that hair touched you. After some weeks of feeding on grass and gaining a large body mass, caterpillars morph into a dormant inactive stage called the pupa. The pupa is covered by a hard exoskeleton that protects it from the adversities of the outside environment. After weeks of dormancy, a shiny and fancy colored butterfly emerges from its shell. Butterflies unlike caterpillars actually feed on nectar which they suck using their stylets from flowers. The nectar is the sweet juice that insects suck off of plants. That constitutes the mains meal of the adult butterfly.
