Facts of Interest:
The change that butterflies go through from egg to caterpillar, to chrysalis, to adult insect, is called complete metamorphosis.
Caterpillars grow by shedding their skins because their skeleton is on the outside and cannot grow with them.
Although some caterpillars defend themselves by appearing to be ferocious, none bite or sting. Only a few have irritating hairs or offensive smells.
Caterpillars specialize in feeding and are mostly leaf eaters. A butterfly's job is to produce eggs. It feeds on nectar or eats nothing at all.
