Fixing the Wing
I liked your video it was awesome. Hope I can come someday, just saying, can you tell me how fast they can fly? Thank you. Back agian, but this time, on offical business. Some new facts I learned are that the Monarch butterfly migrates to the same destination every fall! I think that that would be difficult, because a butterfly doesn't use a map! Instincts, I guess. I had always thought that lots of insects migrated, so I was surprsised to discover that only a few do!
About how many different species DO migrate? And why? I think that most of the reasons will probaly be for weather. I mean, if I could fly somewhere warm for free, I would too! Butterflies got the right idea. We should all grow wings and go to Mexico for the winter. Hi there, Mookiethecat! We think you're on to something Some animals, like birds and butterflies, can travel long distances! We like your style, Mookiethecat-- traveling South for the winter sounds like a good deal to us at Wonderopolis! That's a super Wonder, Zoe! We are glad that you're using your imagination and thinking about the distance different butterflies can travel!
We bet you can find out if you do some research of your own I'm in Mrs. Caplin's class. I thought this wonder was super cool.
It was also neat because at home I have a butterfly collection. I think they are so amazing, and every time I see one I stand there with my mouth gaping open. We are so proud to hear that you have a butterfly collection of your very own-- you must know a great deal about all the amazing things these insects can do! Butterflies have the same effect over us, too-- we are always in awe when we see them flutter above us!
Thanks for sharing your comment with us, Wonder Friend! Thanks for sharing your enthusiastic comment with all of us at Wonderopolis today! You had a great guess for today's Wonder, Tiauna, and we hope you enjoyed learning about these amazing butterflies! They are great travelers!
Will a butterfly die if I touch its wings?
I think this wonder was amazing! I love butterflies and have been to the conservatory many times. My favorite is the Monarch. We think it's oh-so-cool that you have seen all these butterflies when you visited the conservatory-- what a great way to inspire Wonder!
Thanks for sharing your favorite butterfly and your awesome comment, too! I think tomorrow's will be about bats, or nocturnal animals. Thank you for posting this awesome video, and other FAQs about butterflies! You've got some great guesses for tomorrow's Wonder-- we are excited to use our imagination with you soon and expand our knowledge with great Wonder Friends, like you!!
Zoology is not my expertise, so I can't add any additional information. I find that the lifespan of a Monarch is tragically short. Do you have any information about why they live such short lives? The amazing directional knowledge of Monarchs is spectacular. I believe that tomorrow's Wonder will be about owls. We appreciate your comments for today's butterfly Wonder, Tori! We hope you enjoyed learning something new about these amazing creatures-- they are great travelers!

We Wonder if you can do some research on your own to find out more information about all that butterflies can accomplish during their lifespan. Did you know that the zebra butterfly is the state butterfly? I have those butterflies in my backyard under the medium size tree that the butterflies live under.
WOW, what a great fact to share, Carlos! We are so happy to have a great Wonder Friend like you! We appreciate your comment and can't wait to Wonder with you again!

Fixing the Wing An entomologist with access to laboratory materials and delicate tools might be able to fix a butterfly's wing, possibly even enough for the butterfly to fly. Housing the Butterfly The butterfly needs accommodation that contain things to climb up that don't allow too far of a fall. Food for the Butterfly Check the needs of your species, but most are fine with an artificial nectar solution.
Food for Offspring If the butterfly came from the wild and is not obviously male -- some species show clear differences in wing color and pattern between the genders -- she possibly has mated before breaking her wing.
