Monarch Butterfly facts:

The Scientific Name of the Monarch Butterfly is Danaus Plexippus. Monarch butterflies are known for the long journey they take. They fly between 1,900 and 4,500 miles from the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada to the montane forests of central Mexico. There the Moarch butterflies can hibernate from early November to mid-March. The skies are dotted with little orange-colored wonders during their migration. The name Danaus plexippus, comes from the Greek and literally means ‘sleepy transformation’.
The name refers to the species’ ability to hibernate and metamorphize. A Monarch caterpillar is a work of art in itself. Its entire body is striped yellow, white and black. Adult monarch butterflies have two pairs of brilliant orange-red wings, with black veins and white spots along the edges. Males, which have distinctive black dots along the veins of their wings, are slightly larger than females. Each adult butterfly only lives for about four to five weeks.

The colorful pattern of Monarch butterflies makes them easy to identify, which is their secret strength. The striking colors warn predators that they taste bad and are poisonous. The poison comes from their diet. Milkweed itself is poisonous, but Monarch butterflies have evolved over the centuries to tolerate the poison. Also, they can use the poison to their advantage by storing the toxins in their bodies and making themselves toxic to predators, such as birds. The total body length is about 5 centimeters and the wingspan is up to 10 centimeters.
