How does a caterpillar turn into a butterfly?
Well I thought I knew the basics. I don’t know where I learned it, but I thought that the caterpillar hung from a branch and used its silk to spin a chrysalis around it.
Actually the caterpillar sheds its skin and the chrysalis is inside the caterpillar. Check out this great video from Smarter Every Day:
After a little research, it looks like my idea that the the caterpillar spins silk around itself comes from moths. Some moth caterpillars do spin a cocoon around themselves.
God’s creation is truly amazing.
I hope that this humble blog can help you get “smarter every day”.
