Monarch butterfly Migrating Animal Online Coloring Pages

Many animals migrate, traveling to avoid bad weather, to find food, or to reproduce. Some migrators travel short distances, other go thousands of miles. Migrators travel by flying, swimming, walking, hopping, burrowing, or slithering. True migrators make a two-way trip each year from one place to another and back again.

Direction of Migration: Most migrators travel north and south, but some, like the umbrellabird and the earthworm, migrate vertically (up and down). The umbrellabird migrates from high altitude forests to low altitude forests; termites and earthworms travel from the surface deep into the soil.

Longest Migrations: The Arctic tern migrates the longest distances of any animal. It flies over 21,750 miles (35,000 km) each year - roughly the circumference of the Earth. The whale that migrates the longest (and the longest-migrating mammal) is the Gray Whale, which migrates about 12,500 miles (20,110 km) each year. The insect that migrates the longest is the desert locust, which travels about 2,800 miles (4500 km). The butterfly that migrates the longest is the Monarch, which migrates up to 2,000 miles, flying from Canada to central Mexico in the fall. The land animal that migrates the longest is the caribou, which travels about 700 miles (1100 km).
