The butterfly and the silk worm have unique lifecycles. • Their life cycles consist of four stages: • egg • larva: caterpillar and silkworm • pupa: cocoon or chrysalis • butterfly or silk moth
First Stage: Egg • Each adult butterfly and silkworm lays hundreds of eggs in neat rows. They may be round like balls or flat like pancakes. www.panoptikum. net/naturfotografie/ eier2_6e.htm
