AJHQ+A – Butterflies

Frozen Fuzzystar asks Brady Barr ‘why do monarch butterflies migrate?’ in this week’s AJHQ+A.

Do you want to know some more interesting things about butterflies?

Butterflies taste with their feet! Different species tend to lay their eggs on only one type of plant, so it’s important to find the right one. They have tiny spines on the back of their legs called chemoreceptors (key-moe-ree-sep-ters) that can tell the right plant taste!

Butterflies drink from mud puddles. Just like us, they need vitamins and minerals to live healthy lives. Mud puddles are rich in minerals. When a mud puddle is found you can often find a group of butterflies sipping from the same pool. This is called puddling.
