The butterfly life cycle has four stages: egg, larva, pupa, adult. The egg hatches into the larva or caterpillar. The caterpillar eats and grows and uses its spinneret to make a pupa or chrysalis. The caterpillar undergoes a metamorphosis in the chrysalis and emerges as an adult butterfly. The butterfly sips nectar with its tube-shaped proboscis, mates, and lays eggs. Find these hidden terms related to the different body parts and butterfly life cycle either vertically, horizontally, and diagonally.
