butterfly story video

This butterfly story video proves that there is more to a butterfly than you might think! For example, did you know that larvae can live only on a single type of "host" plant? Learn this and much more with this 19-minute video.

The "experts" in this video are two middle school students who help manage their school butterfly farm. You can see the entire life cycle of the butterfly: the egg hatcing under a microscope, the larvae munching their way through adolescence, and the adult emerging from the chrysalis.

Then, at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, we visit the butterfly exhibit and see a wide variety of butterflies found in nature. This bargain video will be a great addition to your life science program!
