What are facts about monarch butterflies?
Monarch butterflies are black and orange. They are known for their migratory patterns, whereby millions of them travel to California and Mexico each winter, on a journey of some 4,800 km. The average lifespan of the monarch butterfly is 6-8 months in the wild. Monarch butterflies have a wingspan of 9.4cm to 10.5cm. They are less than a gram in weight, weighing 0.27 to 0.75 grams. Monarch butterflies are poisonous to their predators, due to the fact that they feed on milkweed in the larval stage. The Monarch butterfly's larva is striped with white/cream, black, and yellow bands. You can tell the difference between the make and female butterfly by the fact that the males have a dark spot on their hind wing and small claspers at the end of the abdomen. The females have thicker wing veins.
