Butterflies transformation is something amazing. It begins as a caterpillar crawling and eating leaves, Monarchs are usually found on milk weed which is their preferred food source.
A chrysalis or nympha is the pupal stage of butterflies. The term is derived from the metallic gold-coloration found in the pupae of many butterflies, and referred to by the Greek term for gold.
Cycle into Butterfly
When the caterpillar is fully grown, it makes a button of silk which it uses to fasten its body to a leaf or a twig.
The caterpillar's skin comes off, under this old skin is a hard skin called a "chrysalis" The chrysalis stage in most butterflies is one in which there is little movement.
Some butterfly pupae are capable of moving to produce sounds or to scare away potential predators.
Within the chrysalis, growth and differentiation occur. Although this sudden and rapid change from pupa to imago is often called metamorphosis.
The pupal stage is found only in holometabolous insects, those that undergo a complete metamorphosis, with four life stages: egg, larva, pupa, and imago.
The processes of entering and completing the pupal stage are controlled by the insect's hormones, especially juvenile hormone, prothoracicotropic hormone, and ecdysone.
The adult butterfly emerges from this and expands its wings by pumping haemolymph into the wing veins.
If you look closely at the last image you can see the details of the wings inside the chrysalis.
When emerging, the butterfly uses a liquid, sometimes called cocoonase, which softens the shell of the chrysalis.
Additionally, it uses two sharp claws located on the thick joints at the base of the forewings to help make its way out.
Having emerged from the chrysalis, the butterfly will usually sit on the empty shell or another vertical surface to rest upon and harden its wings.
