There's nothing like sharing a meal with friends : ) (EXPLORED)

HOW A BUTTERFLY EATS:

What do butterflies eat? Actually, butterflies do not eat at all. Well, at least not in the traditional sense. Instead of eating, butterflies get their nurishment from drinking. They have a long narrow tube in their mouth called a proboscis that acts as a straw.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Butterflies can taste with their feet. They have six legs and they each have sensors on them that can tell just by landing on a flower what it taste like.

 

BUTTERFLY FOOD:

What do butterflies eat? They eat anything that can dissolve in water, They mostly feed on nectar from flowers BUT THEY ALSO EAT TREE SAP, (yes these butterflies above were indeed eating tree sap off of this dying tree) and they also eat dung, pollen, or rotting fruit.

They are attracted to sodium found in salt and sweat. This is why they sometimes even land on people in Butterfly Parks. Sodium as well as many other minerals is vital for the butterflies reproduction.

 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

 

“It may not always be a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”

(Why not take the time and plan something fun this weekend ; )

 

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
