Life Cycle Diagram
Read the definitions below, then label the butterfly life cycle diagram.
adult - the winged adult which will mate and reproduce. Adults do not eat, they only sip liquids through a straw-like proboscis.
larva - (also called the caterpillar) this stage hatches from the egg. The larva spends its time eating, growing and molting (shedding its outgrown exoskeleton).
pupa - the stage in a butterfly's life when it is encased in a chrysalis and undergoes metamorphosis into the adult, winged form.
egg - the tiny orb laid by a female butterfly. Eggs are usually laid on the underside of leaves - they hatch into larvae.
