A butterfly is an insect not an animal

Butterflies are classified in Insecta (insects). This is a class of Anthropoda, which is a phylum of Animalia. Basically: butterflies are animals because butterflies are a type of insect and insects are a type of animal.

they eat and drink, don't they? and are mobile, so they are animals.
